Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie Experience
Dear hubby bought these adorable little cast iron skillets from WalMart in the Christmas gift section. They were individually wrapped and came with a cookie mix that tasted terrible! The skillets are 5 inch diameter by 1/2 inch deep. They are worth the purchase price of $4.88 each because the best online price I could find for a 5 inch miniature cast iron skillet was $8.95 at http://www.castironcookware.com/cast-iron-cookware.html
The chocolate chip cookie recipe can be baked in one large skillet and cut like a pie to serve. Adjust the baking time, depending on size of skillet. Or just make them as cookies!
2 sticks of butter
1 Tablespoon molasses
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups flour
1 bag of chocolate chips
Vanilla ice cream
Optional Topping ingredients
chocolate ice cream syrup
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream the butter, egg, molasses, vanilla, and sugars. Add the baking powder, baking soda, salt, flour and mix. With a spoon or spatula, fold in the chocolate chips.
Spoon the dough into the skillet and pat down flat. Leave room for the cookie to raise and grow a bit, then bake for about 12 minutes, or until lightly brown. Do not over bake, because these cookies will continue to bake in the skillet when removed from the oven.
Remove from oven, and place on plate, remember, the handle of the skillet will be hot! Scoop on vanilla ice cream, then top with your cool whip decorating bag. Add a cherry, just for fun!
