Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie
Have you ever gone shopping and found something that just inspired you to bake? The other day I found this great little cast iron skillet. It was only $5.00 so I purchased it not really sure what I was going to use it for until today. I’m going to bake a Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie as a special treat for my hubby.
I used my regular chocolate chip cookie recipe and filled the bottom of the skillet with the dough and in a few minutes we had a yummy treat to share which is perfect for any night but really nice for Valentine’s Day.
Doesn’t that look amazing? And it’s the perfect size to enjoy a yummy dessert just for TWO which is the best way to celebrate Valentine’s Day or any other special occasion.
Tips on Baking a Cast Iron Skillet Cookie
- The skillet itself only held just under one cup of raw chocolate chip cookie dough.
- Depending on the size of the skillet you purchase, you’ll use a different amount of raw dough.
- Just be careful to not overfill the skillet. It could overflow in your oven as it cooks.
- I did place the cast iron skillet on a baking tray lined with parchment paper to be safe.
Tips on Purchasing a Small Cast Iron Skillet
Now the original little cast iron skillet I purchased didn’t last very long. It was inexpensive and after a few washes, not in the dishwasher, it rusted. So I went looking for another one and found this one that is working great for me. I’ve only heard great things about Lodge and I know their quality is amazing.
