skillet chocolate chip cookie
Oh yes. That is one big skillet chocolate chip cookie.
I have been a total fan of Jenny and her yummy blog since before I even really knew what a “blog” was. I’m sure tons of you have already visited her site, or seen some of the delicious creations she has floating around on the web and Pinterest. (Have you ever heard of Oreo-stuffed chocolate chip cookies? Yep — those are from Jenny!) I have especially admired her for years because of her never-ending creativity when it comes to dreaming up new recipes. She is always coming up with the unique ideas to share, especially in the sweets department. But I, along with countless other bloggers, also love her because of her because of the kindness, encouragement and total joy that she brings to the blogging community.
So I’m stoked that her first cookbook has finally been released! I received a copy last week, and have already dog-eared tons of recipes to try. But the recipe that jumped off the page immediately was this classic “Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie”. It is exactly what it looks like — one huge, warm skillet of deliciousness, all the better when served up along with some vanilla ice cream. Delish.
Thanks for the recipe, Jenny! And congrats again on a wonderful cookbook!!
All of the goodness of a classic chocolate chip cookie, made to share in a large cast-iron skillet!
- 10 Tbsp. unsalted butter, softened, divided
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- vanilla ice cream
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and grease the bottom and sides of a 9-inch cast-iron skillet with 2 tablespoons of the butter.
Add the remaining 8 tablespoons of butter and the sugars to the bowl of a stand mixer and beat until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla, beating until well combined.
Add the flour, baking soda, and salt to a large bowl and mix to combine. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing on low. Add the chocolate chips and mix on low until just combined. Press the cookie dough into the prepared skillet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the edges are crisp and the cookie is golden and cooked through. Remove from oven. Serve warm topped with vanilla ice cream.
