What could possibly make chocolate chip cookies better? Perhaps using all that cookie dough to make one GIANT cookie baked in a skillet? That's right folks, this is a pazookie (or pizza-sized cookie) recipe! And to top it all off, throwing some ice cream on that warm cookie for a completely satiating master piece!
You could easily insert your favorite chocolate chip recipe rather than follow mine, but just in case your looking for a new one, I've included it here. Don't forget to increase cook time if you're following your own recipe though! A typical batch will be adequate for a 10 inch skillet
Let's get this party started!
Step 1: Ingredients
You will need:
cast iron skillet (9-12 inch)
6 tbsp softened butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
as many chocolate chip cookies as you can handle. Also, chopped nuts if you want.
Step 2: Start Your Engines!
Preheat your oven to 350*
Step 3: Mixing It All Together
Cream together the sugars with the butter, then add egg and vanilla extract.
In a separate bowl, sift flour with salt and baking soda. Add to sugar mix, and stir to combine. Throw in chocolate chips and/or nuts.
Step 4: Fill Skillet
Using a spatula, spread the cookie dough evenly through the skillet.
Place in preheated oven, and bake for 18-20 minutes
Step 5: Allow to Cool
This part is the hardest. Waiting for your pazookie to cool, so that it'll cut much cleaner. Patience and will power got me through this. Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes
Gobble it up immediately out of the oven!! You could throw a bunch of ice cream on top of it, and as the hot cookie and the cool ice cream battle for temperature regulation, you'll taste buds will experience it first hand!
Step 6: Making It EVEN Better!
In the true nature of the pazookie, throw some vanilla bean ice cream on top! The cookie could even be re-warmed in the microwave for 10 seconds, so that it can optimize melting time for the ice cream on top! This is what happiness looks like.
