Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie Cake

Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie Cake: Tastes so good, especially while still warm out of the oven! | Ms. Toody Goo Shoes

A big welcome to all of my new followers!

***************
Can I spill it about my skillet?
I'm in love!

I seem to have an abnormal attraction to baking paraphernalia. 

I'm enchanted with my donut pan;
I'm nuts about my jumbo muffin tin;
and, I'm besotted with my cookie cake pan.

My 10" ovenproof non-stick shiny red skillet is my newest infatuation. 
 I bought it at Home Goods a few months ago
(the brand is Cuisinart, by the way), 
and then, it sat in the cabinet all summer, until just recently.
Now, I want to make make anything and everything in my skillet...

Frittatas
Pizzas
Stir Fries
Pasta
Pies 
Potatoes
Veggies
Cobblers
Pancakes
Steaks
Quesadillas

Should I go on?

For Junior Goo Shoes' birthday, I wanted to make him a cake 
that would put a big smile on his face.  
I had it in my head that a deep dish skillet cookie cake would be just right. 
(I did feel like I was cheating on my cookie cake pan, 
but I really wanted to use that skillet).

I headed over to my Pinterest skillet board to see what I could find. 



This recipe from Ree Drummond was right on the money.

And, it did put a big smile on Junior Goo Shoes' face!
(Mr. Goo Shoes, was even bigger, if you want to know the truth).  
When the cookie was gone, I made another one this past weekend,
scoring big points with Junior GS.

He asked if I thought it would get as many pins as my Brookies

Before you get too impressed that he even knows what a "pin" is, 
this is why he asked:

Awhile back, I was kind of talking to myself, and said, 
"Wow, I sure hope my Brookies reach 2,000 pins."
Junior GS wanted to know what that meant, 
so I explained the whole Pinterest thing.

 "If your Brookies get to 2,000, will you buy me something?"

Wha-HUH???

"Well, I was the taste-tester, and if it wasn't for me, 
you wouldn't have known if they were good,
and you wouldn't have gotten as many pins."

Nice try, Junior GS, nice try.

Here are a few things I learned from making this twice:

A couple of the reviewers on the original recipe site suggested 
lowering the temperature to 340°and baking about 10 minutes longer.
This would keep the center from being under-cooked,
and the edges from being over-cooked.
I took their advice both times, and it came out perfectly.
All ovens are different, though, so I can't tell you exactly how long to bake it.

This also assumes you are using a 10-inch skillet.

During the last five or ten minutes, 
I did cover the cookie cake loosely with a piece of foil 
to keep it from getting too brown around the edges. 

This tastes best when it is still warm from the oven.
However, it is still delicious a few days later,
especially if you warm a slice for about 20 seconds in the microwave.

Personally, I think it would be too sweet with milk chocolate chips, 
so I used only semi-sweet. 
But, that's just me.

Of course, the ice cream and hot fudge are optional,
but they are highly recommended!

Ingredients:
2 sticks butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 heaping teaspoons instant coffee granules
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt 
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used 2 cups semi-sweet chips and omitted the milk chocolate .)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350°.
Cream together butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in a large bowl.
Add vanilla and eggs, mixing well.
Combine flour, instant coffee granules, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl. 
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in 3 batches, mixing after each one.
Stir in the chocolate chips.

Spread mixture into a 10-inch skillet and bake until golden brown, 30 to 40 minutes (*I baked at 340°for about 50 minutes after reading some reviews on the original recipe). 
Serve when still warm.
Top with ice cream (optional, but highly recommended!).
