The instructions provided here should make a cookie large enough for 5 or 6 people for about $15. It should take about 10-15 minutes to prepare the ingredients and about 30 minutes to cook, so be ready to invest 40-45 minutes on this.
Be sure to read the directions thoroughly before starting.
Step 1: Collect Ingredients
1 stick unsalted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup dark chocolate chips
In addition to these ingredients, you'll also need an 8 inch cast iron skillet and some vanilla ice cream.
Step 2: Preheat Oven
Step 3: Melt Butter
Step 4: Add Sugars and Vanilla
Step 5: Remove Skillet From Heat
NOTE: After letting the skillet cool for a bit, work quickly until the skillet is ready to put in the oven. The dough should not be allowed to cool too much from steps 6-8.
Step 6: Whisk Egg Into Mixture
NOTE: Make sure the egg does not scramble. You want the egg to mix into the mixture, not cook.
Step 7: Add Rest of Ingredients (except Chocolate)
NOTE: Again, you want to work diligently here. Do not allow the dough to cool too much.
NOTE: Take care not to spill any of the ingredients as you stir them in. Try pouring the flour in slowly to prevent any messes.
Step 8: Add Chocolate Chips
Step 9: Place Skillet in Oven
NOTE: If the cookie is still not finished after the allotted time, add time in 5 minute increments.
Step 10: Serve and Enjoy!
NOTE: The skillet will be hot. Be sure to use a mitt or a potholder when removing the skillet from the oven.
