Skillet cookies, popular desserts on many restaurant menus,  are often baked just long enough to achieve a golden exterior but not enough to “firm up” on the inside. The result is similar to a molten lava cake~a warm, gooey inside that is best eaten with a spoon. Decadent!

skillet chocolate chip cookieI made this skillet chocolate chip cookie last night for a group of teenagers, and it was a huge hit! Within minutes, the entire skillet was wiped clean.

This recipe calls for the classic 10″ Lodge cast iron skillet. A fun and novel way to serve skillet cookies would also be in miniature 3.5″ skillets. I just ordered 8 and can’t wait to try them with this cookie dough. The smaller size will mean an adjustment in cooking time. I’ll experiment and report back soon.
