Cast Iron Chocolate Chip Cookie

Cast Iron Chocolate Chip Cookie

Serves: 8

Hands On Time: 

Total Time: 


1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon coffee extract (optional)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Vanilla ice cream, for serving


Heat the oven to 350 degrees. 

Using a mixer, cream the butter until light and fluffy. Gradually add the brown sugar and granulated sugar and continue creaming until once again light and fluffy. Add the egg and beat until combined. Add the vanilla and coffee extract, if using, followed by the salt. Beat until combined. 

In a medium bowl, sift the baking soda into the flour, and then gently beat into into the dough mixture, taking care not to overwork. Add the chocolate chips and stir to combine.

Press the dough into a 10-inch cast iron skillet, flattening the top into an even layer. Bake until the center is just set, about 20 minutes.

Let the cookie cool for 10 minutes, then serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
