Oh heavens, how do we even begin to describe this Mini Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie with Salted Caramel for Two? ‘Complete decadence’ doesn’t quite cover it but it’s close, so we’ll go with that!

The Mini Skillet Cookie:
My husband and I love desserts, small desserts, once a week. Otherwise we get ourselves into trouble. This cookie is made in a 5 ” mini skillet, the perfect size for two! You can make this cookie with your favorite all purpose flour but we make ours with Jovial Gluten Free Pastry Flour and it’s amazing. It has the slightest grainy ‘bite’ that we love.
We top our mini skillet cookie with our favorite no churn vanilla ice cream and salted caramel. You can make your own sauce (recipe below) or keep this recipe quick and easy by using this storebought organic version.
Two Forks, One Skillet
Sprinkle with a few walnuts, pecans or hazelnuts and you have one mouthwatering dessert meant for sharing!

- 3/4 cups organic granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/3 cup heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla paste or extract
- 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour or gluten free flour we recommend Jovial, linked above
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Place sugar in a heavy bottomed fairly deep pan on med heat.
Use a wooden spoon or silicon spatula to push sugar around.
As sugar melts it will first start to clump, then crystallize and finally become liquid. This takes about five minutes.
When sugar is completely melted and the color of caramel, carefully add butter (watch video for tips).
The butter will bubble up…hence the fairly deep pan. Stir till butter is melted.
When butter is completely melted, turn off heat.
Carefully add cream in a slow and consistent drizzle while stirring. Whisk until smooth.
Add sea salt and/or vanilla if desired.
Allow to cool 5 minutes before serving.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and place oven rack in center position

Place flour, baking soda and sea salt in a bowl, whisk and set aside

Add dry ingredients and mix until well incorporated
