Giant Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie

Hello fellow Cooking with Crystal fans!

It has been quite some time since I have been able to get some new recipes up,

not because I haven’t been cooking,

but because I had to take some time off for some personal reasons. 

Not to worry though, I am back and have a huge list of all the great recipes that I’ve been whipping up lately. 

The first one I want to share with you is a FANTASTIC skillet cookie. 

 

I have a restaurant  in my town that serves this AMAZING giant chocolate chip cookie and for years now I’ve been going and ordering it for special occasions and sometimes just for dinner!

I finally decided to just make one myself and save myself a trip out!

I am SO glad that I did, because this cookie is going to blow your socks off. 

 

 To begin you will make your batter by mixing together the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar together. 

Then add the vanilla and eggs. 

Combine the flour, baking soda, salt, and instant coffee (if using) in a separate bowl. 

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in 2 batches, mixing well after each one. 

Then stir in the milk and semisweet chocolate chips.

Spread the mixture into a 10 inch skillet and bake until golden brown, 30 to 60 minutes.

Remove the skillet from the oven, let cool…

Once it’s cooled down a bit, go ahead and load it with your favorite ice cream, hot fudge, salted caramel, and cherries!
