Best Ever skillet-baked chocolate chip cookies

I feel like I'm obligated to share this recipe with the world.
Seriously.
Dare I say it? I think they're even better than my chocolate chip cookies.
These are chewy and soft with just the right amount of crunchyness around the edges.

I have been looking for this type of cast iron skillet for a long time now, and I finally found two! You probably know how much I love making things in a small format so these are just perfect. You'll probably see a lot more of them here.







Skillet-baked chocolate chip cookies
Makes two 6-inch (15 cm) cookies

110 g butter
110 g granulated sugar
110 g light brown sugar
1 medium egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
225 g all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
75 g milk chocolate chips
75 g dark chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350F (175C).
Melt butter in a saucepan. Add sugars, stir and let cool for a few minutes.
Stir in the egg and vanilla extract.
In a bowl, mix flour, baking soda and salt then add to the butter mixture.
Stir in chocolate chips. Divide batter between skillets or bake in one larger skillet, for about 17-25 minutes. Cookies should be a little brown and crisp around the edges but soft in the center.

  15. There's this chain restaurant called BJ's. It's nothing to write home about. The food is ho-hum at best, but they have these skillet cookies called pizookies. While I was in college, BJ's were only in the Portland area and every time we'd travel north to play University of Portland we'd go to BJ's. The trip was always the most horrendous one of the year, but at the very least we had pizookies to look forward to. Skillet cookies will always hold a special place in my heart because of that. I can't wait to give them a try at home.

  37. Hej Linda!
    Jag har bakat detta receptet flera gånger och det blir ju himmelskt gott!
    Men hur gör jag om jag vill spara kakan till nästa dag utan att den blir stenhård, speciellt kanterna, jag lindade in den i plastfolie men den blev fortfarande hård... Har du något tips? :)
