I consider myself to be a cookie connoisseur… or a cookie lover of sorts… so I will never turn down the option to sample a new cookie or try a new cookie recipe.  One of my favorite desserts is a warm cookie a la mode.  I could easily skip dinner and go right to dessert if I know this is on my menu, so I thought I would try my hand at making a homemade version.  Something I didn’t need to be at a restaurant to enjoy.  The result is a Cast Iron Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie.

The recipe can be found here.

The cookie is hot right out of the oven with perfectly melted chocolate chips and wonderful ooey-gooeyness in every bite.  It’s big enough to share but you might not want to 😊

Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees F.

Add the butter to a saucepan.  Melt over medium heat and continue to heat for 5-6 minutes, until the butter starts to brown.  Whisk constantly.  Remove from the heat and pour into a mixing bowl to cool.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.  Set aside.

Once the browned butter has cooled, add the brown sugar, sugar, vanilla extract, milk, and egg.  Whisk together.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir to combine.

Add ¾ cup chocolate chips and stir to combine.

Generously coat the bottom and sides of the case iron skillet with softened butter.  I like to use my hands for this so I can get into all the grooves and make sure the skillet is entirely coated.

Add the batter to the skillet and use a spatula (or your fingers) to gently spread to the side in an even layer.  You want to fill the skillet completely.  My skillet is about 8-10 inches in diameter and that is the size of skillet you’ll want to use for this recipe.

Top with additional chocolate chips.

Bake for 17-20 minutes or until the edges are slightly browned and the center is cooked through.

Remove from the oven and cool for 5-10 minutes to allow the cookie to set up.  Then, slice and serve.  Top each slice with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.  Alternatively, you can grab a fork and dig right into the skillet, but only after you’ve added vanilla ice cream to the center.

The recipe can be found here.

OMG is this cookie good!  The ice cream starts to melt and soaks into each bite.  The warm cookie right out of the oven will also remind you of your childhood when you would sneak a cookie off the baking sheet when your mom wasn’t looking.  Or am I the only on that did that?  Enjoy!

Happy Cooking!
