Gooey melted chocolate chips enclosed in a buttery cookie.  Looks more like a "pie" than a cookie.  Baked in a favorite cast iron pan provided by Lodge Manufacturing.   Easy to make.  Enjoy!


6 tablespoons unsalted butter 
   OR unsalted butter with sweet cream, softened

1/3 cup packed light brown sugar

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1 large egg, beaten

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted/leveled

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 8" cast iron skillet with
1/2 teaspoon soft butter.  Set aside.  In a large bowl, combine remaining butter, sugars, egg, and vanilla.   Stir together with
a spoon.  Set aside.  Sift together flour, baking soda, and salt.  Add to wet ingredients.  Mix well.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Pour into an 8" cast iron skillet.  Smooth top with back of spoon.  Bake 15 to 18 minutes.  Watch closely.  Edges will be golden brown and center softly set. Wear an oven mitt and use a potholder to carefully remove HOT cast iron skillet from HOT oven.  Let cool 5 minutes.  Cookie will cook a little more in the hot skillet.  Slice and serve. 

Makes one 8" cookie pie.
