  • CAST IRON SKILLET COOKIE ⭐️  EQUIPMENT  - 12-inch cast iron skillet  INGREDIENTS  - 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, slightly softened
- 1 cup brown sugar, packed
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs, cold
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 12-oz package semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 4.4-oz bar high quality milk chocolate, coarsely chopped
- 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
- 1 cup coconut flakes
- flake salt
- ice cream for serving (optional)  INSTRUCTIONS  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F with the rack positioned in the middle.  2. In a stand mixer or in a large bowl with a hand mixer, cream the butter and sugars until smooth. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix again until smooth. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt and mix once again until just combined (it’s okay if a few traces of flour still remain). Add the semisweet chocolate chips, milk chocolate pieces, pecans, and coconut and mix by hand until combined.  3. Spread the batter evenly into a 12-inch cast iron skillet, using a spatula or offset spatula to make the top surface smooth. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the top surface is a deep golden brown—20 minutes if you prefer your skillet cookie extra gooey and soft inside, 25 if you prefer the cookie with more of a true “cookie” structure once cooled. If the cookie browns too quickly tent the top of the skillet with foil. Remove from the oven, garnish with flake salt, and allow to cool for 10 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream or at room temperature as is.  This recipe is courtesy of the Female Foodie App, where we share exclusive app-only recipes every Friday.
