I had pulled this "Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie" recipe out of a recent issue of the little Everyday Food magazine that came with my Martha Stewart magazine. Book group this evening was the perfect group to try it out on. It was easy and yummy, and the warm fuzzies that came from using my mom's cast iron skillet made the flavor even better....
6 T. unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/3 c. packed dark-brown sugar
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 t. pure vanilla extract
1 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. coarse sea salt
1 c. semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine butter and sugars with a wooden spoon. Stir in egg and vanilla. Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir in chocolate chips. Transfer to a 10-inch cast-iron skillet; smooth top.
Bake until cookie is golden brown and just set in the center, 18-20 min. Let cool 5 min.
