Giant Chocolate Filled Cookie

I made this delicious cookie for my husband. Ok, so maybe I ate just as much as he did. I love to bake sweets but try not to make them very often. Now that I have this blog I look forward to changing that! I decided to try a giant chocolate filled cookie in my cast iron skillet. I wanted to make it taste different from the regular chocolate chip cookies I usually make so I used milk chocolate chips instead of my normal semi-sweet chocolate chips. I pressed half of the cookie dough into the pan, poured on milk chocolate chips and pressed the last of the cookie dough on top. It was so good! Now don’t get me wrong we LOVE chocolate chip cookies the regular way, however, this was a chocolate layer in the middle of the cookie instead of chocolate chips. I think the best part was making it in a cast iron pan. It came out golden brown and perfectly cooked through. I love cast iron!

Ingredients

2 sticks butter, softened

1/2 cup sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed

1-1/2 tsp vanilla

2 eggs

2-1/4 cups flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1-1/2 cup mini milk chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl cream butter. Add sugars creaming until combined. Add vanilla and eggs combining until light and fluffy. In a small bowl combine baking soda, salt and flour. Add to cookie mixture stirring until combined. Place about 3/4 of the cookie dough into an ungreased 10″ round cast iron skillet. Press dough evenly on the bottom and up the side about 1/2″. Pour chocolate chips onto the dough keeping them about 1/2″ from the edge. Drop the remaining dough by spoonful’s on top. Using  buttered hands or a spatula, press the dough over the chocolate chips the best you can. Don’t worry if the chocolate chips show. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Check at 30 minutes and remove when the entire cookie is golden brown. My oven cooked the cookie in 33 minutes. Let cool a few minutes and run a spatula around the edge of the pan. Carefully slide giant cookie onto a cooling rack. Let cool and slice into pie like pieces.
