Welcome back to QCK!
I’ve been on a baking kick lately, which isn’t great because I live alone… so I end up eating allll the cookies. So in an attempt to make my life easier, I’ve been working on a few small batch baking recipes, including this peanut butter chocolate skillet cookie.
Not gonna lie, this was partly in an attempt to use this adorable tiny cast iron that came in a set I recently ordered. I mean… how cute, right?! I love it and it’s the perfect size for things like this! I think about making these stupid things all the time but I can never bring myself to do it because Arlo and I could never eat a regular sized skillet cookie. The last time I made one of these was when I lived in a house with five (yes, five! Technically a brothel in the eyes of the law. I assure you it wasn’t, someone needs to update that law) other girls.
So anyways, I love a skillet cookie. They’re fun, they always have that nice crispy edge with an extra soft, gooey center. This one is no excpetion, you can see the crispy, golden brown edges in the picture and the perfectly crackly top. All of that encases a warm, soft, half baked cookie center. Not too gooey, not too cooked either. Big globs of warm, melty chocolate are scattered throughout the peanut butter cookie dough make for the ultimate treat for a date night in or treat yo self dessert. Topped with a sprinkle of flaky sea salt, I mean… how could you not?
