Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie

Did you ever have the Mrs. Field's cookie cakes?  Something about a way too big chocolate chip cookie is just so tempting.

I first saw a skillet cookie at Gimme Some Oven and I was intrigued.

Then I saw another one at Damn Delicious.  I took it as a sign from the Food Gods that this cookie was to be made!

I ended up Googling another recipe simply because of the amount of butter required in GSO and DD's versions.  I settled with a version by How Sweet Eats via Tasty Kitchen, that called for 1 egg and 1 stick of butter.

Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie

(by How Sweet Eats via Tasty Kitchen)

  • 1 stick Butter
  • ½ c Granulated Sugar
  • ½ c Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1½ c All-purpose Flour
  • ½ t Baking Soda
  • ¼ t Salt
  • 1 c Semi-sweet Chocolate, Cut In Chunks

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 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.
  2. Crack an egg onto the butter and sugar mixture, and use a fork to whisk it 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 15-25 minutes, or until starting to turn golden on the top and around the edges, but still soft in the center. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
