The Makeover You Never Even Realized Chocolate Chip Cookies Needed
This brilliant recipe shows us how the workhorse skillet can work its magic on the humble chocolate chip cookie. Turns out a long, slow bake in cast iron causes the edges and bottom of the cookie to caramelize. It's thick and chewy, especially at the center. And the sheer size of this treat (more than nine inches in diameter and an inch high!), with a surface speckled with chips and add-ins (try coconut and apricots), makes it one of the most stunning versions of the classic we've ever seen.
