Deep Dish Cast Iron Cookie - Some changes made to original recipe.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 large egg, room temperature
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 10 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350°F
- Prepare pan. I used a 10", but you could use any size as long as it has high sides. You will have to adjust the cook time accordingly. If your pan isn't well seasoned, add a thin layer of butter. I oiled mine a few hours before I made this with olive oil and it didn't stick.
- Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl.
- In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened butter with both sugars on medium-high speed for about 2 minutes, or until light and fluffy. Scrape the side of the mixing bowl if needed.
- Add the egg and vanilla extract. Mix on medium speed for about one minute.
- Add dry ingredients and mix on low until just mixed together.
- Add chocolate chips and fold them into the dough by hand, scraping the bottom and side of the bowl to make sure all the ingredients are mixed.
- Spread the batter into your pan, and bake at 350 degrees F for 30-40 minutes or until the edges of your giant cookie are golden-brown.
- Don't burn yourself getting this out of the pan and into your mouth too quickly.
I started making my own ice cream a few weeks ago. We got an ice cream maker as a wedding gift, but I never used it because it seemed like such a hassle. So here we are, five years later, and I haven't stopped using it since I made the first batch. I've only made vanilla, but I've made it so many times that I already have the recipe completely memorized. To be fair, it's only five ingredients.
