Easy Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookies
One of our favorite family desserts is Chocolate Chip Cookies. But, as a busy mom, I don’t always have time to make dozens and dozens of cookies (and the texture of my cookies is never right). A great alternative to individual cookies is a skillet chocolate chip cookie. You get the same great taste of a chocolate chip cookie, but it takes less time and your family will love their treat.

When I was growing up, I spent lots of time baking with my grandmother. She always baked with a black cast iron skillet. It seemed like she was always cooking with her cast iron skillet. To this day, I love to cook with my iron skillets too. If you don’t have a cast iron skillet of your own, here’s one of my favorite cast iron skillets that would be a great starter one for you.
A skillet cookie has so many variations you can add. You can add a scoop of ice cream or chocolate syrup. You can also add strawberries on the side. A skillet chocolate chip cookie will be a favorite in your home before you know it, just like it’s a favorite with our family.
