One Pan Caramel Chip Skillet Cookie

   Since hubs had to work on his very first Father's Day I decided to make dessert to take in for the guys dinner. I was gone for a lot of the afternoon so I wanted something that would be quick to make before 'Tater Bug' woke from his nap and needed to be fed etc. It also had to be something that would compliment banana-grape nut ice cream. So to good ole' pinterest I went searching.... Came across this recipe from sophistimom and knew it was just what I was looking for. =)
   So while baby snoozed, momma made ice cream and baked a cookie.....
One Pan Caramel Chip Skillet Cookie
 1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
11/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup caramel bits
Preheat oven to 350*. In a cast iron skillet melt butter over med/low heat. stir in sugars and vanilla. Remove from heat. Let rest until the pan is warm, but no longer hot. {about 5ish min} Crack the egg into the sugar mixture beat in well with a fork. Add flour, baking soda and salt. Stir it in very carefully until smooth and well mixed. Add caramel bits and mix in. Spread out evenly in the skillet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with ice cream.
   I loved this and will be making it very often I'm quite positive. Not only do you only mess up one pan you can customize it very easily with different chips etc {which I did, the recipe originally called for choc chips}
The guys seemed to really enjoy it as well. And Daddy was happy to see his little boy =)
First Father's Day

As a father has compassion on
his children, so the Lord
has compassion on those who
fear Him...
~Psalm 103:13

Have a happy day!
