This was my first attempt at baking something so big. I’ve made giant cookies but never one as huge as this. This is also my first time whipping up my brand new Le Creuset skillet for this purpose.
I didn’t spend much time fussing about the flavour of the cookie. All I could ever think about after making that butterscotch crepe cake few weeks ago was brown butter and caramel. No those two words never left my thought dictionary after that day we all sat down to savour the layers of cake.
I threw in some Lindt caramel sea salt chocolate together with some Ghirardelli chips ( BJ uses them too! Wahhaa) and toasted walnuts.
Just dump the entire batter into the skillet and let your oven do the magggiiiccc...
This recipe was adapted from damndelicious. If your’e attempting this, hope you enjoy eating it as much as I did. Enjoy. Enjoy over a cuppa milk and with friends!
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
14 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
1 cup chocolate chips
Ice cream, for serving
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly coat 2 5-inch cast iron skillets with nonstick spray.
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
Melt 10 tablespoons butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook, whisking constantly, until the foam subsides and the butter begins to turn a golden brown, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat; strain through cheesecloth or fine sieve.
Stir in remaining 4 tablespoons butter until completely melted. Whisk in sugars and vanilla until well combined. Whisk in egg and egg yolk until well combined. Add flour mixture, beating just until incorporated. Gently fold in chocolate chips.
Divide mixture into the prepared skillets. Place into oven and bake until edges are golden brown but center is still moist, about 12-15 minutes.
