There’s a craze in the fine country of ours. It’s a craze of wonderfully gooey and chocolaty goodness. It is a craze of skillet cookies topped with ice cream and eaten with a group of loved ones, normally at a restaurant and for a special occasion. People gather around a table and the server brings out a cast iron skillet of some sort with the cookie inside and a nice big ball of vanilla ice cream on top (it’s already starting to melt by this time, bless its soul). the cookie is still hot, but y’all cannot wait to scoop it up and shove it in your face because it’s that good.
I attempted this yesterday, and I would have to say that it turned out pretty darn wonderful. I had a wonderful day a State Large Group Festival, with four events that all went well, and so we had something to celebrate, but it was only the three of us and we needed to not consume a huge ten inch cookie, so I did something a little different that what was described above, but stay tuned and you’ll hear what that difference was.
To start, preheat your oven to that magic number of 350 and mix up a batch of cookies, THIS recipe does wonders.
Then, take your wonderful friend of a cast iron skillet and put a good layer of cookie dough down and squish it around to make sure that it’s even and not awkward.
Now pop it in the oven until it’s just barely golden brown on the top and take it out of the oven to cool. If you can’t eat it all at once, let it go just a smidgen longer and it will look like this.
Now let it cool for just a couple of moments and then slice it up, serve it with some ice cream and then cry because you have finally witnessed beauty for the first time in your life ever (I’m kidding, that was when you heard music, but still this is also a wonderful experience).
I would like to take this time to remind you that you are a wonderful person and should be celebrated, as is your mother. You could make this for her for next weekend, I’m sure she would love it. I know my mom enjoyed it.
