Meatless Monday - Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie

Every cook should have some cast iron cookware.  It may seem funny for a potter to be telling you to have some cast iron but, it's versatile, and lasts forever and it can add some iron to your diet which is healthy.  I cook lots of soups and sauces in cast iron but I also use it for baking cookies.  Cookies, in a frying pan?  Yup.  Easy and delicious cookies too, and because of the possibility of them being higher in iron content I can pretend they are healthy.  Oh, and clean-up is easy also because you make everything in the pan.

  • 1 stick butter or margarine 
  • 1 1/2 cups Granulated Sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 whole Egg (or egg substitute)
  • I 1/2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • ½ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt plus a sprinkle or two of sea salt
  • 1 cup Semi-sweet Chocolate, Cut In Chunks
  • Handfull of chopped nuts (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 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.
2. Crack an egg onto the butter and sugar mixture, and use a fork to whisk it 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 chunks. Place in the oven for 15-25 minutes, or until starting to turn golden on the top and around the edges, but still soft in the center. Sprinkle the sea salt on top. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
