Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie
For our sixth wedding anniversary, I got C an iron skillet filled with cheesecake truffles. There was a mix-up from Amazon and the skillet was delivered to our neighbor, long story short, I ended up with two 8" skillets.  I use the skillets for making steaks (one makes a blood rare steak for me, the other a medium steak for C.)   The skillet mix-up was a win-win, even though I worried whether I would have any gift for C at the time.  This cookie may be my new favorite use of the skillet.  And be warned, the "careful" in the instructions when stirring in the flour is not a stern enough warning.  I had lots of fun cleaning flour from my stovetop.
Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie
from Sophistimom

1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 egg
1 ½ cups unbleached all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in an 8 inch cast iron skillet set over medium-low heat. Stir in sugars and vanilla and remove from heat. Let rest until pan is warm, but no longer very hot, about 5 minutes.

Crack an egg onto the butter and sugar mixture, and use a fork to whisk it well into the mixture. Place flour, baking soda, and salt on top, and very carefully stir into the mixture until smooth and well-mixed. Stir in chocolate chips. Place in the oven for 20 minutes, or until starting to turn golden on the top and around the edges, but soft in the center. Serve with vanilla ice cream.

This is great... I have a few smaller cast iron skillets that I picked up from a thrift store and I haven't used yet. Now, I have something I can use them for! Thank you :)
