Skillet Cookie

Skillet Cookie
serves 8

1 Stick of Butter
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Light Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 Egg
1 1/2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1 Cup Chocolate Chips (I used half white and half milk chocolate)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Melt butter in a 8- or 10- inch cast iron skillet over medium-low heat.  Stir in sugars and vanilla and remove from heat.  Let rest until the pan is warm, but no longer very hot, about 5 minutes.  Mix the egg into the butter/sugar mixture and use a fork to whisk it into the  mixture.  Place flour, baking soda, and salt on top, and very carefully stir the mixture until smooth and well mixed.  Stir in the chips. Place in the oven for 15-25 minutes or until starting to turn golden on the top around the edges, but still soft in the center.  Serve with ice cream, if desired.

How fun is this recipe?  You get one big cookie instead of 2 dozen smaller ones, which is perfect when there's only two of us to eat it all.  And you only use one pan!  This pinterest inspired recipe is my new guilty pleasure.
