Double chocolate cookie skillet
This giant cookie skillet is super fudgy, packed with chocolate chips and has a gooey warm center. But let me back up - what even is a skillet cookie? A cookie skillet is basically a cookie recipe that you bake in a cast iron pan, pie dish, etc. Why do this? There are a few reasons.
- It's easier. There is no need to chill the dough because you don't have to worry about it spreading since it bakes in a perfectly contained dish. No need to roll out the dough so your hands do not get dirty, and you don't have to worry about making them all the same size. No need to worry about turning the pan of cookies half way through so they get an even bake. I think I am convincing myself to never make cookies ever again...
- Gooey center. With a cookie skillet, it is much easier to achieve crispy edges and a gooey delicious center. I don't think I need to do anymore explaining on this point.
- Spoon ready. With a cookie skillet, you can just eat it with a spoon. No worries about greasing up your hands, it is ready to go with a spoon the minute it gets out of the oven. Plus, this makes it easier to top with ice cream, which we obviously need to do.

- Press the dough into the prepared skillet and top with more chocolate chips. Bake for 25-27 minutes until the edges are set and slightly crispy. A toothpick inserted into the center should come out with a few moist crumbs.
