Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Skillet

Here is another easy dessert recipe for home, or for sharing. We had some friends over for takeout, but I felt the need to supplement with a homemade dessert. Hence, my first cookie in a skillet! They are super popular, and I see why: you don’t have to dirty a bunch of pans, and it’s fun watching it come together. You could use most chocolate chip cookie recipes with a few minor tweaks and still get a good result. Below you will find my version.
