Useful tools for this recipe
Flour & cornstarch
Use all-purpose wheat flour and be sure to weigh the flour with an electronic kitchen scale. Cornstach brings more softness to cookie recipes
Tip: To make a gluten-free chocolate chip skillet cookie, replace the wheat flour with rice flour or another gluten-free flour.
Use a quality unsalted butter with at least 80% fat and above all it must be at room temperature, softened or even use melted butter so that it can be combined with the other ingredients.
As in the cookie recipe, I always use a mixture of granulated powdered sugar and brown sugar which brings a delicious flavor. You can replace the brown sugar with cane sugar.
This recipe calls for only one medium to large egg, which should be at room temperature. If you didn't have time to take it out in advance, run it under hot water for a few moments.
To obtain this beautiful soft and tender texture I use a mixture of baking powder and baking soda.
Satl and vanilla extract
Use sea salt to bring out all the flavors and goes perfectly with chocolate. And pure liquid vanilla extract to bring a delicate fragrance to sweet recipes.
You can use semi-sweet chocolate chips or cut out chunks of chocolate from a bittersweet chocolate bark. And why not try my homemade chocolate chips recipe which is super easy and very practical.
You can add even more crispness with crushed nuts like almonds, pecans or hazelnuts.
To enjoy your skillet chocolate chip cookies add the sweetness of vanilla ice cream and a rich chocolate topping.
How to make skillet chocolate chip cookie recipe
Start by creaming in a large bowl the softened butter with the granulated sugar and brown sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed for 1-2 minutes until creamy and fluffy.
While mixing, add the egg and vanilla extract and mix for another minute.
Then add the dry ingredients with a spatula or wooden spoon, flour, baking soda, baking powder, cornstarch and salt. Gently mix until you have a smooth batter.
Stir in the chocolate chips or chocolate chunks and mix with a wooden spoon or with your hands to incorporate them into the dough.
Cover with cling film and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes or ideally 2 hours.
Preheat your oven to 350°F / 180°C and grease an 8 inch skillet oven safe with a little butter. Pour the whole batter into the iron skillet and place a few chocolate chips on top.
The baking time will depend on the diameter and power of the oven about 15 - 20 minutes until the cookie turns to a golden brown color. It will still be a little soft but it will harden as it cools.
Let the cast iron skillet chocolate chip cookie cool completely, or if you prefer, eat it warm and serve it with vanilla ice cream.
