It goes without saying that chocolate chip cookies are a standard in dessert. Who doesn't like a homemade, warm cookie? I actually don't normally go straight for cookies, I'm more of a brownie or a tiramisu lover (find my tiramisu recipe here), but this brown butter cookie skillet has me drooling even by just thinking about it. Gooey white chocolate chips immersed in a decadent, chewy brown butter cookie. The flavors are so perfect together, and since it's made in a large skillet, there is room to share it. I'm not saying you have to, but it's an option. No judgment at all.
Making cookie skillets are actually very similar to making a batch of cookies, only all of the batter goes directly into a cast iron skillet to bake for a little longer than traditional cookies would. For traditional cookies, you would let the dough chill, then pop some onto a baking sheet and make a few rounds of cookies, whereas a cookie skillet goes straight into the oven for about a half an hour. The end result is a gooey, chocolatey dessert which can only be paired with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. Sometimes the easiest things can be super intimidating, but I am here to help shed any hesitations with making a cookie skillet. Trust me, it's way easier than you think!
Making brown butter is something that takes a great deal of patience, but is so worth it for the results:
The best thing about making a cookie skillet is that it uses very minimal equipment: a cast iron skillet and a mixer. Believe it or not, I don't have a stand mixer. I solely use a hand mixer and a large mixing bowl. I love using OXO mixing bowls because they are sturdy and dependable. Here's all you really need to make this delicious brown butter cookie skillet:
This brown butter cookie skillet will leave you drooling, salivating, and with a desire to make it weekly just to devour it up and make it all over again.

Better yet, cut into strips and top with a nut butter for a even more decadent dessert. Your tastebuds will thank you.
