We were introduced to "Chocolate Chip Cookies Served in a Skillet" while dining at Timberline Lodge on Mt. Hood.
The cookies were baked in 5" Lodge cast iron skillets, served piping hot, with a mountain of vanilla ice cream. And everything was so hot that the melting ice cream sizzled and popped when it hit the edge of the pan.
I can't say the recipe was anything unusual...but the presentation was so fabulous! Of course, it's hard to beat any kind of chocolate chip cookie fresh served in any fashion out of the oven. These, however, made a big impression on us, so on the way home we had to make a short stop at the outlet stores in search of more cast iron. =)
Now to figure out how to make them work while camping!
P.S. 1 regular batch makes 4 skillets. They're meant to be shared!
