Skillet Cookie

A big, warm, gooey cookie with lots of chocolate. If you have a bunch of friends over for a movie night, this is great to eat still warm from the pan, with ice cream and chocolate sauce. If you don’t have company to help work your way through it, the leftovers do cool and harden into big cookie slices that can be picked up and…also served with ice cream and chocolate sauce.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chunks or jumbo chips
  • ice cream and chocolate sauce, for serving

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease a 10″ cast-iron skillet and set aside. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the sugars and butter and beat until smooth and fluffy.

Add the egg, milk, and vanilla, beating until smooth again.

Add the flour mixture gradually, beating until just combined.

Fold in the chocolate chips and chunks.

Transfer into the greased pan and smooth the top to spread evenly.

Bake for 40-45 minutes, until golden around the edges, and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with only a few crumbs attached.

Cool in the pan 15 minutes, then cut into slices and serve with ice cream and chocolate sauce.

Next time I’ll probably cut into 10ths, these were BIG slices.

Once cooled, the slices hold together!
