It was 10:50pm and my daughter sent me a link on Facebook asking me to please, pretty please, make this for her.
Usually I would send one back telling her that she's lost her mind, but because I love her, and because I was actually craving something sweet, I said yes.
We went into the kitchen, whipped this up super quick and before the night ended we were enjoying this delicious cookie. I won't lie, it is super rich at least for me, but it didn't stop me from munching down on my portion.
I didn't do the small two portions that the recipe originally calls for, and that is only due to the fact that I don't have small cast iron pans, so I doubled it and used my big pan, it still turned out just fine.
So, here is the recipe, enjoy!
Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie
Source: Damn Delicious
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.
Serve immediately, topped with ice cream, if desired.
