Caramel Filled Skillet Cookie
Hey ya’ll, we hope this post finds you enjoying a lovely Monday morning! Did you have a great Thanksgiving, fun with their family and friends, and enjoy all the leftovers? We had so much fun this weekend and ate way too much food!
Although we didn’t eat very much turkey, we always go for the sides and desserts: the sweet potato casserole, mashed potatoes, corn casserole, green beans, stuffing, cranberry salad (depending on who made it…), pumpkin pie, pecan pie, cookies, and pretty much any other dessert that you can think to bring to a Thanksgiving dinner! If it’s there and it’s a dessert, we’ll try it!
What did you guys have for Thanksgiving? What’s your favorite part: the dessert, side dishes or turkey? Let us know in the comments below!
Speaking of Thanksgiving, we set this out for dessert, and it was a big hit. It was gone before the pumpkin pie! Actually, we had leftover pumpkin pie and no cookie! You might remember our Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Cookie, which was insanely good. Well, we have come to make it even better by adding caramel to it! When it comes out of the oven it is so ooey and gooey with caramel deliciousness! Add a heap of ice cream on top and you might just end up eating the whole cookie!
The caramels that we used for this recipe were homemade (which we recommend, as it’s the best way to eat the cookie) If you don’t have time to make homemade caramel (trust us, we understand!) then store bought caramel will do just fine!
1/2 cup + 1 tbsp butter, melted
1/2 cup + 1 tbsp sugar
1/2 cup + 1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg yolk
2 1/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1-2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (depending on how chocolatey you want it!)
30-40 caramels (depending on the size)
- Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 9-inch cast iron skillet
- Mix together the butter, sugar, and brown sugar.
- Add the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk. Mix until well combined.
- Add the dry ingredients, mix until just moistened. Add chocolate chips, and continue mixing until chips are completely mixed in.
- Spread half of the cookie dough into the bottom of your pan. Then, lay the caramels on top of the dough in an even layer. Top with the remaining cookie dough. Bake for 35-40 min.
- Eat warm!
