So it’s 88 degrees out and you really want chocolate chip cookies but don’t feel like spending an hour to make them? Why don’t you just make them in a skillet instead?
They look like this…
and take about half the time to prepare!
So simple, all you do is melt butter straight in the skillet on the stove, stir some sugar eggs and other chocolate chippy type ingredients in, bake for fifteen minutes and you’re ready to go!
Did I tell you that you only have one dish to clean when you’re all done? Yeah. Do it.
The process looks kinda like this…
So, big chocolate chip cookie it is.
In other big news, I created a facebook page for plays with food! Like it if you feel inclined to do so! That’s where I’ll be keeping a record of all of my photos and asking y’all what I should be baking.
Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Skillet
(adapted from sophistimom)
–1 stick unsalted butter
-1/2 cup granulated sugar
-1/2 cup dark brown sugar
-2 tsp vanilla
-1 1/2 cups flour
-1/2 tsp baking soda
-1/4 tsp salt
-1 cup chocolate chunks/ chips
Preheat oven to 350. Place an 8 or 9″ skillet over medium heat on a stove, melt butter and swirl around pan, going about a half inch up the edges (this helps prevent the cookie from sticking). Remove from heat and let rest for 5-10 minutes. Stir in sugars. Using a fork, beat in the egg and vanilla. Dump in the flour, baking soda, salt and chocolate, fold until completely combined but DO NOT OVERMIX (i did this and ended up with a tough cookie). Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes, until baked to your liking. DO NOT OVERBAKE!
So once again, here’s a skillet with a cookie in it…
and here’s a spoon just seconds away from diving into that chocolatey mess..
