Last night my husband looked at me and said “Where’s the chocolate chip cookies?”. I looked at him with crazy eyes and said “What do you mean chocolate chip cookies?! We don’t have any chocolate chip cookies!” He then proceeded to give me the “Please can you make cookies face?” and I of course did what was necessary and made the damn cookies! My husband is a spoiled turd! When it comes to food he always gets what he wants from me. He’s lucky I love cooking!
Now there are always a few things that I make sure I keep in my pantry/fridge and chocolate chips is one of the pantry staples. I make sure to never be without a bag, because who knows when my husband will give me the “please make me cookies face”. Trust me that face is a sight to see and who can say no to a face like that?!
I did one-up myself and baked the cookie in a mini skillet. I got my mini skillet from Amazon and I love it! But then I didn’t stop there, I proceeded to top the cookie with Neapolitan Ice Cream and whip cream. All I can say is that it was AMAZEBALLS!! I couldn’t put the skillet on the table fast enough for my family before their spoons went digging in it.
I’m sorry for the poor picture quality. I took the photo with my iPhone because it was a last minute dessert (no time for food styling and making sure the lighting was right) and once I ate it I knew it was too good not to share.
I also made regular cookies out of this recipe. The cookies were fantastically chewy and delicious!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Skillet

Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
