Skillet Style Chocolate Chip Cookies

Normally, I am captured by fashion, beauty and accessory photos but I recently came across this photo of Skillet Style Chocolate Chip Cookies while looking through a blog I enjoy.  With Fall “sweater weather” I am thinking of cozy gatherings, fireside foods and cold-weather treats – this chocolate chip cookie seems to fit that bill!!

Ashley’s most delicious looking Salted Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie is from Anthropologie’s Blog which always has great visuals, fun ideas and inspiration.  You can visit the blog by clicking here. I have not made this recipe but it really looks too good not to share — and definitely do share if you make it!

Ashley’s Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies, Skillet Style

½ cup (1 stick) butter
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 tablespoons turbinado sugar
¾ cup plus 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar, packed
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 ¾ cup all purpose flour
¾ teaspoon baking soda
¾ teaspoon kosher salt
6 ounces chopped chocolate or chips (Use the best quality chocolate your budget will allow. With a serrated knife, cut chocolate into roughly ½ inch chunks)
½ teaspoon flaky sea salt

12″ cast iron skillet

Preheat oven to 400°F. Cream the butter and sugars on medium-high speed until light, 5 minutes. Scrape down the side of the bowl a couple times in this process. Continue mixing while adding the egg. Add the vanilla. Scrape down the bowl with a spatula. Combine the flour, baking soda and kosher salt in another bowl. Whisk to combine. With the machine on low, slowly add the flour mixture. Mix until just combined, taking care not to over mix. With a spatula, fold in the chocolate.
Dump the dough into a 12″ cast iron skillet and pat down to flatten into an even layer. Then sprinkle the flake salt on top. Bake for 12 minutes. Edges will be golden while the center is still soft and gooey.
For regular cookies, scoop onto a lined cookie sheet then sprinkle each cookie with a bit of the flake salt. Bake in a preheated 360°F oven for 10-12 minutes, depending on size. Makes 18-24 cookies.

And, don’t forget spoons and scoops of ice cream dropped on the just baked cookie!!
