deep dish cast iron skillet cookie

Deep Dish Cast Iron Skillet Cookie

August 14, 2019 in Food, Recipe, Recipes - No Comments

My cast iron pieces have become the most (only) used cookware in my home. I use them every morning for breakfast, and then again for dinner if I need them. Over the weekend, I decided to try my hand at baking in them. Everyone does it, so it can’t be that hard right? Right! It actually saved me some dishes, not having to have several mixing bowls for wet and dry ingredients. Do y’all remember my Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe? I took that and adapted it to make this Deep Dish Cast Iron Skillet Cookie.

One of the first things that I think of when I hear skillet cookie, are those pizookies that you find in the mall, or at supermarkets. And, to be honest, I’ve never had one of those. I know, gasp. Though, I knew that I wanted it to be deeper than that, more like a cookie pie than a cookie pizza. Using my Lodge Cast Iron 3.2 Quart Skillet, I was able to achieve the deep dish skillet cookie that I was looking for here.

I know what you’re thinking–let’s get to the recipe.

Gather Your Ingredients

  • 1 C Butter
  • 1 C Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 C Granulated White Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 TSP Vanilla
  • 2 1/3 C Flour
  • 1 TSP Baking Soda
  • 1/2 TSP Salt
  • 1 C Chocolate Chips (You could even do 1/2 chips and 1/2 chunks)

Vanilla Ice Cream, for serving.
My first go-round at this, I added about 2 – 2 1/2 C Chocolate Chips, same as my cookie recipe. Do NOT do this. Lol. Don’t add any extra chocolate chips, unless you prefer a super and chocolatey fudgey cookie

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 Degrees
  • In your cast iron skillet (can be anywhere from 10-12 in– a deeper skillet works best), melt butter over medium heat stirring often! Burnt butter is gross and you’ll have to start over…so watch this carefully.
  • When it starts to bubble and is fully melted, turn your heat to low and add your sugars. Keep stirring until this mixture is glossy and free of lumps.
  • Put a kitchen towel down on the lowest shelf in your fridge, and place the skillet inside to cool for 20-25 minutes (this will keep the eggs from scrambling when you add them in the next step).
  • Remove from fridge and add your eggs and vanilla, stir well to combine.
  • Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • *Check to make sure that your dough is room temperature* Add in your chocolate chips and stir.
  • Bake at 350 for 26-30 Minutes or until the edges are a light golden brown. *The insides will still be a bit gooey, but that’s what you want, and it will set some once you remove it* It’s so easy to overbake this, so keep an eye on it. If your inside looks super gooey and the crust is already golden brown, place foil over top to keep crust from burning and bake for an additional 3-4 minutes.
  • Let your cookie rest for a few minutes, slice into it, and serve with vanilla ice cream!

Don’t worry, the leftovers are good too.

  • It’s the weekend! ⠀
⠀
You know what that means! ...#StayHome and #FlattenTheCurve. ⠀
⠀
▪️(Thank you to all of the essential workers around the country who don’t have this luxury and are depending on us to do what we can to help.) ▪️ It’s scary, I know. 
It feels isolating, I know. ⠀
It’s frustrating, I know. ⠀
You are craving some normalcy, I know. ⠀
⠀
But look, the sooner we all fall in line and do the *one thing* we know can work and stop the fast spread of this virus, the sooner we can get back to our usual routines. ⠀
⠀
We are all in this together...⠀

  • A Little After Dinner Coloring. 
Trying to break up activities here so that no one gets bored. #creativeathomechallenge prompt today was craft/art, and it’s not what I had in mind...but he enjoyed it! 
What has been your favorite thing to enjoy with your kids during this time at home?
  • ☣️ STOP ☣️⠀
⠀
We have to act NOW to save lives. Listen up.⠀
⠀
While panic is never preferable- if that's what it takes for you to stay home and slow the spread, then maybe you need to get scared. ⠀
⠀
People are exponentially spreading this disease with no symptoms. We have all GOT TO STAY HOME. No more lunch with the ladies. No more playground meetups. ⠀
⠀
STOP IT ALL IMMEDIATELY. SHUT IT ALL DOWN.⠀
⠀
There are otherwise healthy children and young adults on *limited supply* ventilators right now. This virus is brand new to the entire world and it is ravaging people's bodies in unexpected fatal ways- and no, not just the elderly or compromised.⠀
⠀
Math is math. We are already projected to run out of lifesaving equipment and supplies very quickly. ⠀
⠀
This is not media hype, this is not a hoax, this is real. It may be easy to forget that we are in the middle of a dangerous pandemic while the sun is out, traffic is light, and you are off work.⠀
⠀
There are no sirens going off or bombs exploding in your front yard, but I can promise you that we are in a very real crisis. However, we have SOME control.⠀
⠀
The longer we wait and the more we continue to socialize with each other and expose ourselves in public the longer we will be stuck in isolation, the longer people will be out of work, the longer our children won't have school, the longer our economy will suffer.⠀
⠀
Keep in mind that Wuhan did a very tight lockdown and they have STILL been quarantined for two months now and cannot lift the quarantine until they have gone 28 days without a new positive result. The US government has been very lax in comparison and this will not bode well for us if we don't do better NOW.⠀
⠀
This won't last forever, but our future WILL look a lot different based on the choices we make. ⠀
⠀
Just because the government did not force you to stay home or because your favorite restaurant, store or salon has chosen not to close does not mean you should leave your home.⠀
⠀
➡️*obviously this is intended for people who are VOLUNTARILY not staying home.*⬅️⠀
WORK. ESSENTIALS. HOME. THAT SHOULD BE IT!⠀
⠀
DO YOUR PART. ⠀
STAY HOME. ⠀
SAVE LIVES.⠀
⠀
#stayhomeblackout #flattenthecurve
  • Well. This wasn’t what I was going for today #creativeathomechallenge. It’s been pretty chilly haha...puns (don’t let that beautiful sky deceive you) and my plans to get a picnic together for lunch this afternoon were ruined. Maybe I can do that finally on back yard day 😂😂
Trying to support businesses and third party delivery services like Door Dash and their drivers—they now offer contact free deliveries, which is greatly appreciated to get a mild feeling of normalcy, one of my favorite dinners. It’s something small and easy that you can do if you’re able. Some of these DD drivers are relying solely on people to still order so that they can make money. #stayhome #flattenthecurve #slowthespread
