Yes, that exclamation point above is needed.
This cookie is amazing and crazy easy. Yay for easy, right?
In fact, the only real problem with this cookie is that it will be rapidly consumed. See that thumbs up? It’s for real.
Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 cups (about 9 ounces) semisweet-chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt; set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter and sugars until mixture is light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add egg; mix until fully incorporated. Add flour mixture, and beat until just combined.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Transfer dough to a 10-inch ovenproof skillet, and press to flatten, covering bottom of pan. Bake until edges are brown and top is golden, 40 to 45 minutes. (Watch it — mine takes much less time but I think my oven is kind of an overachiever. I haven’t had this oven long so I’m still trying to figure it out. ) Don’t overbake; it will continue to cook a few minutes out of the oven. Transfer to a wire rack to cool, 15 to 20 minutes.
Cut into wedges and serve with ice cream and caramel sauce, if you want to be fancy.
It’s yummy, y’all! Happy Friday!
