My life has been a crazy blur these past few weeks. Big changes at work (positive, exciting changes I should add), track meets, school activities, last minute tax preparation...you get the picture. What better way to relax on an activity-free Saturday than with a cookie that you mix and cook right in the skillet. Spoon a scoop of ice cream on top, pass out some spoons, and dig in. Talk about a yummy treat to indulge in after a long busy week. Go ahead, you deserve it!

What you need:
1 stick 8 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup chocolate chunks
How to make it:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in an 8 inch cast iron skillet set over medium-low heat. Next, stir in sugars and vanilla and remove from heat. Let the mixture rest until the pan is warm, but no longer very hot, (about 5 minutes).
2. Crack an egg onto the butter and sugar mixture, and use a fork to whisk it well into the mixture. Place flour, baking soda, and salt on top, and very carefully stir into the mixture until smooth and well-mixed. Stir in chocolate chunks. Place in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until starting to turn golden on the top and around the edges, but soft in the center. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
