First order of business. I strongly urge to purchase a cast iron skillet. You will thank me.
Second order of business. You must make this Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cast Iron Skillet Cookie. You will thank me.
Nate and I love cast iron skillet cookies. A chocolate chip cookie with a hint of bacon-y grease flavor. Can you get any better than that?
You can. Add pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice to it. We don’t mess around here at Décor and the Dog.
I suppose you could make this in any regular ol’ pan. But don’t. Get yourself a cast iron skillet.
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cast Iron Skillet Cookie
- 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup pumpkin
- 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
- 2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice and salt. Set aside. Cream butter and sugars until mixture is light and fluffy. Add egg, vanilla and pumpkin; mix until they are fully incorporated. Add flour mixture. Beat until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
Transfer dough to a 10-inch ovenproof skillet (lightly greased) and spread to cover the bottom of the pan. Bake until edges are brown and top is golden, 25-30 minutes. Don't over bake. It will continue to cook out of the oven. Transfer to a wire rack to cool in pan. Cut into wedges.
And be sure to Instagram it. I mean, it didn’t happen if you didn’t Instagram it.
I’ve had some questions about our cast iron skillet. We have the Lodge Logic 12" Pre-Seasoned Skillet. We’ve had ours for a couple of years now and it keeps getting better with age!
Are you a cast iron skillet cookie fan? How about pumpkin? I can’t quit the pumpkin. Wait, I’m eating vegetables. Awesome.
