Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie

WHEN YOU NEED A QUICK AND EASY (easy!) homemade dessert, look no further than this chocolate chip cookie baked in your black iron skillet.

No need to use (or clean up) the mixer. Don't bother getting out those cookie sheets and parchment. No standing over the oven to make sure your delicate cookies won't burn (as all cookie bakers know can happen in seconds). Nope; just one bowl, one wooden spoon, one skillet. And feel free to walk away from the kitchen for a few minutes while it bakes.

This cookie recipe is also accommodating--any baking chips will do, as well as add-ins such as coconut, pecans, M&M's. And because you have one large surface, there is plenty of room for piping messages and decorating.

Delicious as a base for a Sundae with a scoop of your favorite ice cream, syrup, whipped cream, fresh fruit.

Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie
6 Tbsp. softened butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a mixing bowl, combine the butter and sugars with a wooden spoon. Stir in egg and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix in the chocolate chips.

Transfer to a 10-inch cast iron skillet and smooth top. Bake until cookie is golden brown and just set in the center, 18 - 20 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes.

“sweet spring is your
time is my time is our
time for springtime is lovetime
and viva sweet love

(all the merry little birds are
flying in the floating in the
very spirits singing in
are winging in the blossoming)

lovers go and lovers come
awandering awondering
but any two are perfectly
alone there's nobody else alive

(such a sky and such a sun
i never knew and neither did you
and everybody never breathed
quite so many kinds of yes)

not a tree can count his leaves
each herself by opening
but shining who by thousands mean
only one amazing thing

(secretly adoring shyly
tiny winging darting floating
merry in the blossoming
always joyful selves are singing)

sweet spring is your
time is my time is our
time for springtime is lovetime
and viva sweet love” 
― E.E. Cummings
