Double Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

People that know me well, know that I would rather eat two whole bread baskets over dessert. When it comes to this giant skillet cookie I can honestly say my boyfriend witnessed me eating almost half of it. I have always been a sucker for cookie dough and the center of this cookie is not fully cooked which makes it so damn good. Next time you want to make a batch of cookies, DON’T DO IT. Make this.

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar (I used light)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups dark chocolate chips
  • 2 large eggs

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and grease a cast iron skillet well with baking spray
  2. In a medium bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together and set aside
  3. In a stand alone mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar
  4. Add vanilla and eggs one at a time scraping down the sides of the bowl as you go
  5. With the mixer on low-speed, slowly add the bowl of dry ingredients. I incorporated it 1/3 at a time. The dough may look a bit crumbly but don’t over mix
  6. Lastly, mix in the dark chocolate chips (or chunks)
  7. Pour the batter into the skillet and spread as evenly as possible with a spatula (I topped with some extra chocolate chips)
  8.  Bake for 12-15 minutes depending on how doughy you want your cookie!

(I topped with vanilla bean ice cream and sprinkles. Happy Valentines Day everyone!)
