Cast-Iron Chocolate Chip Cookie
The Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie
Below is a chocolate chip cookie recipe my family and I have enjoyed for years. The simplicity of this recipe will blow you away; the delicious flavors and soft textures will have you making this at the campground and your home. All you need is a good 10- or 12-inch cast-iron skillet, like this one from Lodge, a few basic ingredients and a bit of time.
What You’ll Need
- A 10-12 inch cast iron skillet, like this one from Lodge
- 1 cup unsalted butter, melted
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- ½ cup light brown sugar
- ½ cup dark brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2½ cups unbleached all-purpose flour
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips
- Add butter to a 12-inch cast-iron skillet. Place the skillet in the cold oven. Heat oven to 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until butter is melted and slightly bubbly.
- Remove pan carefully and pour butter into a large bowl. Add all the sugars to the melted butter. Mix well with a whisk until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla. Whisk until smooth.

- Place cookie dough in the buttered cast-iron skillet, spreading evenly. Be careful as the skillet is still hot.
