Cast Iron Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie

You heard me.

Huge cookie, happy kids.

Here's the recipe!


2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer (I did it with a whisk by hand with softened butter) fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter and sugars until mixture is light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add egg and vanilla; mix until they are fully incorporated. Add flour mixture, and beat until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
Transfer dough to a 10-inch ovenproof skillet, and press to flatten, covering bottom of pan. Bake until edges are brown and top is golden, 40 to 45 minutes. Don't overbake; it will continue to cook a few minutes out of the oven. Transfer to a wire rack to cool, 15 to 20 minutes. Cut into 8 wedges. I topped ours with a fancy striping of chocolate sauce. (Hershey's chocolate sauce for chocolate milk).  You can top with whipped cream or ice cream!

I forgot to put regular sugar in the pic. Oopsie.

These look just like those delicious pizzookies you find at restaurants. I have a linky party every weekend on my blog called "Sweets for a Saturday" and I'd like to invite you to stop by then and link this up.
