Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

One of my husband’s favorite desserts is a pizzookie from BJ’s restaurant. A warm cookie straight out of the oven that is topped with ice cream? Yes please!  With that in mind I wanted to create a skillet cookie at home for him for Father’s Day.

The secret to those crispy edges and soft center in a skillet cookie is melting your butter before creating your recipe.  I know it sounds crazy – because melted butter in a regular cookie will create pancake flat cookies.  But melted butter in a skillet cookie is perfections.


Measure, Mix, Lick The Bowl

I wanted to show off my cute little Kitchenaid Mini Stand Mixer.  My first impression of these was that it was unnecessary –   I couldn’t imagine why anyone would need a smaller Stand Mixer.  But let me tell you – I love this thing.  I love that the footprint is smaller, and the 3.5qt bowl is large enough for a double bath of cookies!  I really really recommend the mini.

For my skillets I used the individual skillets from Fiesta.  They come in an array of colors, but I went with their matte black called foundry.  I thought it was traditional and beautiful and a compliment to the golden cookie.  Alternately – you can create a larger cookie in a large cast iron skillet with a longer bake time.

You want to serve these babies straight out of the oven, only cooling for a few minutes, with a scoop of ice cream and a drizzle of chocolate sauce.  My husband prefers chocolate, while I prefer vanilla ice cream – both are delicious, so go with your favorite.  I promise these will be a huge hit for Father’s Day.
