Skillet Cookie and a Give-Away

Today is a good day.  It's Friday and one of the last weekends of school.  The blooms are out and my husband is home.  I got my camera back and it is working as it should.  Because the planets are aligned and I am in such a good mood, I thought I'd make a little something for you to make while your friends are visiting (or not).

I had something similar to this Skillet Cookie whilst my friends and I were sunning ourselves by the pool at the Jay Dub in Scottsdale.  I love this dessert because it is a warmed cookie topped with a generous scoop of ice cream and smothered in caramel syrup.  The best treat ever.  Stay tuned after the post for my first ever give-away.  Enjoy!
Cream the butter, sugars and egg.
Dry ingredients need to be mixed just until combined.
The finished dough.

Press 1/3 of the dough into (2) 6.5 inch skillets. I made cookies with the remaining dough.
Cooked through and golden brown...begging for ice cream and caramel.

Serve with good quality vanilla bean ice cream.   
My daughter wanted to add hot fudge.  I wasn't about to disagree.
Warm and chocolaty drizzled with melted ice cream and caramel topping. 
Oohhh. Our bellies are full!

Skillet Cookies
*Adapted from Martha Stewart

2 cups all-purpose flour   
1 teaspoon baking soda      
1/2 teaspoon salt 
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened 
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar 
1/2 cup sugar 
1 large egg 
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 
1 1/2 cups mixed milk and semisweet chocolate chips (about 9 ounces)

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
3. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter and sugars until the mixture is light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
4. Add egg and vanilla, mixing until they are fully incorporated.
5. Add flour mixture, and beat until just combined.
6. Stir in chocolate chips.
7. Transfer dough to a 10-inch or two 6.5-inch ovenproof skillet(s), and press to flatten, covering the bottom of the pan. Bake until the edges are brown and top is golden, 40 to 45 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool, 15 to 20 minutes. Cut into 8 wedges or pass out forks and eat straight from the pan. Serve with a scoop of ice cream or a large glass of milk.  I had my pans in my fridge filled and ready to bake when my guests visited which made it possible to serve it piping hot.  Perfect!
I am going to give away a second set of cast-iron pans purchased from my favorite cooking store, Williams Sonoma.

    My favorite is the classic chocolate chip warm with a tall glass of milk! I have already liked your page, but I am going to "like" it again, does that give me extra points??

    Andrea says:

    This looks heavenly!!  My favorite all time cookies are warm chocolate chip cookies or no bake cookies!  Yummy!

    Martha says:

    Chocolate Chip coolies from Flatbread Pizza in Meridian....YUMMY!!!  To be honest though, any plate of cookies that someone brings to your door and you didn't have to bake is about as good ast it gets.

    Rachel says:

    My favorite cookie is Jodi Jensen's chocolate chip cookies. :)

    Debbie says:

    I love to slowly eat Jodi's Chewy Peanut Butter Cookie with Melted Chocolate while sitting on a deck in McCall, looking at the lake, in the warm sun, with good friends. Oh, don't forget a tall glass of milk! That's what I'm talkin' about! Let's go!

    Linda says:

    I like peanut butter chocolate chip cookies warm from the oven.  My second favorite is a brownie-type cookie that tastes wonderful, too!  

    Courtney says:

    Shut up! My favorite cookie is homemade oatmeal with raisins... Will I lose points if I admit that I haven't had a chocolate chip cookie that I thought was really good ever? People always claim theirs is the one that will change my mind, but so far, no luck. 

    Terry Walker says:

    I love all kinds of cookies!!  But I love a good ginger snap cookie with a cold glass of milk.

    Amber Allen says:

    Oh Cookie... How I love thee!  To choose a favorite is very tough because all cookies are a little taste of heaven no matter how different they are ;)  My favorite has to be Jodi's Texas Governor's Mansion Cowboy Cookies! I love all the YUMMY stuff that goes into them!

    Lula says:

    Oooo, okay, my grandmothers snickerdoodle recipe, probably dating back to the time of King Arthur's roundtable. (Civil War cookies are sooooo yesterday.) 

    Janette says:

    Question is, what cookie don't I like? I love Mexican wedding cookies, Ginger snaps with pumpkin dip, and ....... Drum roll please-- peanut butter chocolate cookie bar. Yummo!

    Krista Eastes says:

    Man, this was a hard choice.  I LOVE THEM ALL!!!  One of my many favorites is a chocolate chip oatmeal with walnuts. (Hearty oatmeal with the slight oiliness and nutty flavor of the walnut and what can I say, everything is better with chocolate!)  I hope I win.  I've been dreaming of these pans for two years and that dessert just made me have to have them!

    chocolate chip oatmeal raisin!  Yum!

    Emlouisa says:

    My fav are pumpkin chocolate chip with nuts in them.  Mmmmmmmm.....

    Brooke says:

    I have a love affair with cookies, and it is no good for mama.  Maybe it would not be a good thing for me to win this thing...  My favorite all time is oatmeal choc. chip. 

    Brbellamy says:

    Oh come cookie on the planet?  None other than white chocolate macadamia nut, with more macadamia nuts than chocolate.  I am drooling just thinking about a warm one right out of the oven!

    Suzette says:

    My favorite cookie is actually brownies.  Do those count as cookies?  I hope so because I really do love them.

    Cynthia says:

    I love all kinds of cookies but all time favorite would probably be the gooy ol' fashion chocolate chip.

    Paula Huffman says:

    I love a cookie called "All Kinds of Cookies" which has everything in the kitchen in it almost, oatmeal, rice crispies, wheaties, chocolate chips, coconut, nuts, as well as the other basics. It makes a gross (144) of cookies and you need to mix it in a huge tupperware bowl because it won't fit in a mixer bowl. Every one who eats these cookies gets addicted to them. You can't eat just one, ever.

    Paula, I'd love your recipe for "All Kinds of Cookies"  they sound like my kind of cookie!

    Hools says:

    My all time favorite cookie is one that you made for me in Texas. It's called Monster cookies ?? and has honey in them, chocolate chips, maybe even toffee chips. I don't know but when I ate them I died and went to heaven. I am also a oatmeal raisin kinda girl. Honestly there isn't a cookie I don't like and you have introduced me to many of my favs. Thanks Jodi.
