Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie

This giant soft and gooey chocolate chip cookie is easy to make and always a favorite! Serve warm with vanilla ice cream!

Ingredients
  

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg and 1 egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup sprinkles if desired
  • Sea salt for sprinkling before baking, if desired

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease a 12-inch cast iron skillet and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine melted butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Stir until smooth. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla and mix until combined.
  • Add the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. Stir until flour disappears. Stir in the chocolate chips and sprinkles, if using.
  • Spread batter evenly in prepared cast iron skillet. Sprinkle the top with a little sea salt, if desired. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until golden brown. Don't over bake, you want the cookie to be slightly gooey. Remove from oven and let cool on a wire cooling rack for 10-15 minutes. Serve with ice cream, if desired.
  • Note-you can use a 10-inch skillet or pie plate. The cookie will be a thicker so you will have to bake it a little longer.
