Skillet cookies are new to our house. Roll your eyes if you must. They’re probably old news but as I’ve mentioned before, I’m a tad late when it comes to the food party!
I enjoy making regular cookies but when the method is even easier, like smoosh dough into a skillet and bake? Sign me up! I added a bit of caramel sauce in the middle so when you slice in you can see the glossy ribbon of golden yumminess.
- 15 caramels unwrapped
- 3 tbsp heavy cream
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 3/4 cups flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- In a small bowl combine the caramels and cream. Microwave for 30-40 seconds and stir until melted. Set aside.
- Cream the butter and sugars. Add the vanilla and egg and mix until combined.
- Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and mix until incorporated.
- Stir in chocolate chips.
- Press half the cookie dough into a 10 inch cast iron skillet.
