Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie

Yields1 Serving

 1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
 1/4 cup sugar
 1 large egg
 1 tsp. vanilla extract
 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
 1 tsp. baking soda
 1/2 tsp. salt
 1 - 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)
1

Preheat the oven to 350F.

2

In the bowl of a food processor fitted with the blade attachment, pulse the butter and brown sugar until well blended. Add the egg and vanilla and process for a good minute, until the mixture is pale and creamy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl if you need to.

3

Add the flour, baking soda and salt and pulse until almost combined; add the chocolate chips (and pecans, if you're using them) and pulse just until the dough comes together.

4

Press the dough into 1 large or 2 smaller cast iron skillets (or bake some of the dough in a skillet and drop the rest by the spoonful onto a parchment-lined sheet); bake for 15-20 minutes, or until pale golden and just set. (If you're baking cookies, bake them for 12-14 minutes, until pale golden around the edges and just set.)
