Oh help me now.
It’s really not good how easy this is. And it’s really not good how simple the cleaniup is. This is really just not good.
In fact, it’s so not good…that I couldn’t not keep it from you.
Alright. Enough with the negatives. This is me being facetious.
It really is not good that I now know how to make a chocolate chip cookie in just a skillet. No messing with bowls, cleaning up cookie sheets. Just bake, eat and wash out the skillet. It’s too simple. And way too easy!
Inspired by this one pan skillet cookie from Sophistimom.
One Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie
Yield – 16 cookies
Prep Time – 10 minutes
Cook Time – 15 to 20 minutes
1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 Tablespoons milk
1 1/2 cups white flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 semi-sweet chocolate baking squares, chopped (or 1 cup chocolate chips)
- Preheat the oven to 350.
- Add the stick of butter to an 8 or 10 inch cast iron skillet and melt over medium-high heat. Once melted, stir in the sugars and vanilla. Remove from heat.
- Whisk in the egg and milk, then stir in the flour, soda and salt.
- Fold in the chopped chocolate or chocolate chips.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or longer if needed to cook through.
- Serve warm from the skillet
- (Remember to use caution with the skillet after removing it from the oven. Leave an oven mitt around the handle so you don’t forget you just took it out of the oven and that it’s piping hot!)
