If you’re anything like me, there is no such thing as too many cookies, or in the case of this Cast Iron Skillet Cookie, a cookie that is too big!!
This, my friends, is an entire batch of chocolate chip cookies! One big fat deep dish chocolate chip cookie! I decided to top my Cast Iron Skillet Cookie with a handful of mini M&M’s because…..why not? Who wouldn’t want some candy coated M&M’s along with lots and lots of chocolate chips!!
Sadly, I didn’t get the picture of how this giant Cast Iron Cookie should be served. I didn’t have anyone at home to help me dig in, but, imagine…
Take this warm baked cookie from the oven…..
now, top it with a couple of big scoops of vanilla ice cream….
then, set it in the middle of the dining table.
Now, hand everyone a fork and demand them to DIG IN!!
How fun would that be!!! I’m telling you, you’ll get major Mom points!! MAJOR POINTS!!
**remember that cast iron pans stay quite hot, so remind everyone to use caution when digging in (place a couple of dishtowels or pot holders for holding onto the pan if needed).
