Who doesn't love a cookie, hot out of the oven? Especially when it's gooey inside and finished off with a scoop of vanilla ice cream?
I adore cookies but I don't adore the measuring cups, mixing bowls, cookie sheets, scooping, wire racks, etc. that making a batch requires.
This recipe eliminates it all. You get a warm, gooey cookie with NO EXTRA PANS. Just a measuring cup or two.
I found this recipe linked on Pinterest (to this blog) and wasted no time in trying it. It takes basic ingredients I always have on hand and it's so dang easy! This was a great treat to console ourselves with last night while watching the extremely stressful Rangers game.
Mine took longer than 15 minutes - closer to 20. Just keep an eye on it.
Make it tonight!
One-Pan Skillet Cookie
1 stick (8 tablespoons) butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup chocolate chunks
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in an 8 inch cast iron skillet set over medium-low heat. Stir in sugars and vanilla and remove from heat. Let rest until pan is warm, but no longer very hot, about 5 minutes.
Crack an egg onto the butter and sugar mixture, and use a fork to whisk it well into the mixture. Place flour, baking soda, and salt on top, and very carefully stir into the mixture until smooth and well-mixed. Stir in chocolate chunks. Place in the oven for 15 minutes, or until starting to turn golden on the top and around the edges, but soft in the center. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
