At the same time, trust me, I am happy that I finally get two weeks off from this hectic schedule I call third year medical school. I intend to use them to watch TV, eat, sleep, bake and repeat.
It was around this time I got a wonderful gift in the form of a 6 inch cast iron skillet pan and I was overjoyed because there is a baked good I have been meaning to make for ages. The gigantic skillet cookie and that's what I did today.
The recipe is simple - it's like any other cookie dough recipe that you would use but instead of many small cookies, you make one gigantic one. I modified the recipe from Bake or Break - a wonderful site with lovely recipes with a few modifications:
1) I replaced a 1/4 cup of flour with baking unsweetened cocoa.
2) I cut the sugar by half
3) I added a shit load of chocolate chips - how can you go wrong?
Everything else was identical to the recipe there.
Easy as pie - or cookie - dump ingredients into the mixing bowl
The dough comes together in a snap
Press the dough in and top it with more chocolate chips
Stare at this gorgeousness that is the cookie :-)
Enjoy this delicious cookie with some mmm... ice-cream. I used vanilla!
This is wonderful to share with your family or with yourself, but since it's the holidays, you probably should be nice (just this time.)
