Have you ever gone shopping and found something that just inspired you to bake?
The other day I found this great cast iron skillet.. It was only $5.00 so I purchased it and thought I'm going to bake cookies tonight as a special treat for my hubby. I used my regular chocolate chip cookie recipe and filled the bottom of the skillet with the dough and in a few minutes we had a yummy treat to share which is perfect for any night but really nice for Valentine's Day!

Doesn't that look amazing! And it's the perfect size to enjoy a yummy dessert just for TWO! The skillet itself only held just under one cup of raw chocolate chip cookie dough. Depending on the size of the skillet you purchase, you'll use a different amount of raw dough. Just be careful to not overfill the skillet. It could overflow in your oven as it cooks. I did place the cast iron skillet on a baking tray lined with parchment paper to be safe.
Now the original little cast iron skillet I purchased didn't last very long. It was inexpensive and after a few washes, not in the dishwasher, it rusted. So I went looking for another one and found this one that I think will do great. I've only heard great things about Lodge and I know their quality is amazing.

The perfect sweet treat for two to share. Feel free to add a sprinkling of powdered sugar or a scoop of ice cream! Delicious! Serve it warm!
Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter; softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 large eggs
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Depending on the size of your skillet, press the dough into the skillet that's been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven until the edges are crisp and the cookie is golden and cooked through. Remove from oven.
