1cupbutter, softened + more for greasing skillet2 sticks
8scoopsvanilla ice cream
Whisk together flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl.
In a large bowl, mix soft butter, sugars and vanilla until well blended. Mix in eggs and blend until you get a light and fluffy texture.
Slowly beat in flour mixture to eggs and sugar. Then fold in 1 1/2 cups of the chocolate chips.
Generously grease a cast iron skillet with butter.
Grab all of the cookie dough and roll it gently into a large ball. Then press it into the greased cast iron skillet. Build up the edges a little higher than the center since the edged cook faster.
Press the remaining 1/2 cup of chocolate chips scattered all over the top of the giant cookie.
Bake in a preheated oven at 325˚for about 25-35 minutes or until the center is just set. Cover with foil if you notice edges starting to get too dark early on in the baking.
When done, remove from oven and let cool for at least 5 minutes. Slice like a pie and serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
