This was so so good! We made it last weekend and loved it! This is one giant chocolate chip cookie made in a cast-iron skillet. I found it on my good friend Aimee’s blog, See Aimee Cook. This would be great with walnuts or pecans added in. My cast-iron skillet is 12″, not 8″, so I just made one and half times the recipe, and it worked beautifully. I had to increase the cooking time to about 25 minutes. Enjoy!
1 stick (8 tablespoons) butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup chocolate chunks
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in an 8 inch cast iron skillet set over medium-low heat. Stir in sugars and vanilla and remove from heat. Let rest until pan is warm, but no longer very hot, about 5 minutes.
Crack an egg onto the butter and sugar mixture, and use a fork to whisk it well into the mixture. Place flour, baking soda, and salt on top, and very carefully stir into the mixture until smooth and well-mixed. Stir in chocolate chunks. Place in the oven for 15 minutes, or until starting to turn golden on the top and around the edges, but soft in the center. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
