So I love my cast iron skillet and try every reason to use it! Once I found out you could cook pizza in a skillet(Still trying to perfect the dough) I was beyond excited. And now to learn you can make a dessert in one too…. hello mind blown!! So I took a basic recipe and changed it a bit, like brown butter, dark brown sugar and more chocolate.

Cast Iron Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie (With browned butter)

You will need for a large 12 inch cast iron, if you have a smaller skillet cut in half or bake two.
2 stick Butter
1 cup Granulated Sugar
1/2 cup Light Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Dark Brown Sugar
2 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
2 whole Eggs, room temperature
3 cups All-purpose Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoons Salt
2 cup Semi-sweet Chocolate chips
1/4 cup Reese’s peanut butter chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Melt butter in a cast iron skillet set over medium-low heat. If you have the time go ahead and brown the butter.

Stir in sugars, slowly and vanilla and remove from heat. Be carful to not let your sugars turn to caramel.

Let rest until pan is warm, but no longer very hot, about 5 minutes. Add one egg at a time onto the butter and sugar mixture, and whisk 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.

Place in the oven for 20-35 minutes(If using a smaller pan adjust baking to 15-25), or until starting to turn golden on the top and around the edges, but still soft in the center. The great thing about a cast iron is it keeps the heat so be careful about over cooking.
