I veered off the healthy eating path over the weekend and had this beautiful creation. A (mostly) one-pan skillet cookie topped with ice cream. I know!
I made half of the recipe and shared then gained back a few pounds. Worth it. Grab your cast iron skillet and get crackin, lads and lasses. (And happy 54th anniversary to my grandparents!)
Dark Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie from Sophistimom
Serves 4 to 6
1 stick (8 tbsp) unsalted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg beaten
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 cup dark chocolate chips or chunks
Preheat the oven to 350F. In a cast iron skillet, over medium heat, melt the butter then add the sugar and brown sugar. Stir to combine. Remove from the heat and let cool for 5 or so minutes. Beat the egg, add a small amount of the melted butter and sugar (to temper it), whisk to combine. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet, stir to combine. Add the flour, baking soda and salt to the skillet and carefully stir then add the vanilla extract and chocolate. Stir some more then bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Serve warm with ice cream or not but that’s crazy talk.
