Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

Makes 12 servings

Ingredients:

  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter (melted and cooled so it won’t melt the chips; can also use coconut oil)
  • 3 tablespoons milk or milk alternative
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • Box of Swerve Sweets Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix
  • ¼ cup Swerve Granular
  • ¼ cup semisweet chocolate chips or Lily’s Chocolate Chips
  • 8-inch cast-iron skillet or dish

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Melt butter and set aside (you want butter to cool a bit so it doesn’t melt chocolate chips).  Grease skillet and set aside.

Combine milk and vanilla extract in a medium bowl, and whisk together until combined.  Add cookie mix, Swerve Granular, chocolate chips, and melted butter to milk and vanilla mixture.  Mix well with a spatula.

Place dough in skillet and press down until it is evenly spread across skillet.  Cover with aluminum foil, and place in oven.  Cook for 10 minutes and then remove foil.  For an ooey gooey skillet cookie, cook for another 15 minutes.  Take out of oven, and top with Swerve Vanilla Ice Cream.

Note: If you want a firmer cookie, cook for 20 more minutes after removing foil.
