One giant cookie for Mankind. Or something like that. I’ve always wanted to make one giant chocolate chip cookie but whenever I make chocolate chip cookies I change my mind. Until yesterday when I set out to make exactly that 1 big Iron Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie. It’s gorgeous and oh-so GOOD! Imagine your children’s eyes when they see a giant chocolate chip cookie. Yup, all worth it.
First, I hope you have a cast iron pan. If you still don’t have it, please invest in one. Seriously, it’s time. Then make this one and when you do, remember to divide the ingredients of your favorite chocolate chip cookies in half. Or go on and make them as is then just divide the dough for 1 giant and the rest for regular sized cookies.
Iron Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie
- medium size cast iron skillet
- 1 stick butter room temperature
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/8 tsp baking soda
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 bag/packet semi-sweet chocolate chips (save some to top after baking)
- oil spray
- In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. In a mixer, beat butter and granulated sugar. Add egg, vanilla extract, and brown sugar to mix. Gradually add in the flour mixture while it continues to mix. Stir in the chocolate chips.
- Let the cookie dough chill in the fridge for an hour or two. *You can skip this if you want. I prefer to chill my cookie dough for a little bit.*
- Preheat the oven to 350°. Coat the skillet with oil spray. Press the cookie dough into the pan. Fill up the pan with all the dough.
- Bake in the oven for 22minutes.
- Once out of the oven, chill for a few minutes. Add the reserved chocolate chips on top for more chocolate goodness.
Cut in triangles. Serve with milk.
