Chocolate Chunk Skillet Cookies

Years ago, we bought our first cast iron pan and have never looked back.  In fact, I still think longingly of the cast iron pan that my sister has that was our Grandmothers.  It's specifically a biscuit pan and is probably so thoroughly seasoned that nothing would ever stick to it!  When we started supplying the Airstream we immediately bought a 9 inch pan to be a regular cast member in the tiny kitchen.  It got quite the workout this weekend including sloppy joes, pancakes, and sausage.  But the best of all was the skillet cookie that I made to celebrate Father's Day on Sunday.  Bryce loves chocolate chip cookies and there was no way that I was going to make cookies in Silvie, but this giant cookie?  Perfection and then some.  It was so, so good.  I'm still sort of dreaming about it...

 Chocolate Chunk Skillet Cookies
recipe found on Pinterest from Off-Grid Home Sweet Home

1 stick unsalted butter
1/2 cup granulated suage
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 egg
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1 cup chocolate chunks

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Melt butter in cast iron skillet (I used a 9 inch) on medium-low heat.  Stir in both sugars and vanilla and remove from heat.  Let rest until pan is warm, but not longer very hot, at least five minutes (if pan is too hot the egg will start to cook when added!).

Crack an egg onto the butter and sugar mixture, and use a fort to whisk it well into the mixture.  Place flour, baking soda, and salt on top, and carefully stir into the mixture until smooth and well-mixed.  Stir in chocolate chunks.  Place in the oven for 20 minutes, or until done to your liking (you might like crispier or doughier!).
