Very rarely do we order dessert out at a restaurant & even more rarely do we allow the girls to choose the dessert. Once upon a time, many years ago, we allowed the girls to select the dessert and they chose the skillet chocolate chip cookie with ice cream. They were thrilled. When I came across this recipe, I knew it would be an instant hit with them.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. kosher salt
- 2 sticks butter
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 3 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 1 12oz. bag of chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Butter a 12 inch cast iron skillet; set aside. In a stand-up mixer, beat the butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla together. Add in the flour, soda, and salt and stir to combine. Add in the chocolate chips, reserving a handful.
Press the mixture evenly into the skillet. With the remaining chocolate chips, sprinkle around the top and gently press in. Bake for 20 – 22 minutes to ensure the middle is set. Remove from oven, cool, or slice and serve.
