Sometimes I get an itch.
Not the rash-y kind, but the kind that gets into your head and won't go away with the cold shoulder. You just HAVE to scratch it. What I mean is, sometimes, I just gotta get my bake on! I heart creaming together softened, light yellow butter and sparkley white and brown sugar crystals; that gooey mess makes my heart go pitter-patter (that's right before it relapses into depression about it's cholesterol levels). The thought of adding an egg and a healthy helping of vanilla extract is enough to drive me to drinking...ahem, the whole bottle of extract! Add the dry ingredients, and hopefully something in the realm of chocolate, and by the time it's coming out of the oven, golden-brown and perfect, the angels in heaven have hushed their singing to admire what is, the chocolate chip cookie.
Tonight I experimented with two tried and true, All-American favorites...the chocolate chip cookie and the cast iron skillet. Crazy, right? I must admit that the thought of these two obsessions coming together to create one, beautiful concoction made me drool on-the-spot. Seriously.
All credit must go to the legendary Martha Stewart and her notorious Cookie-A-Day emails that I receive. Every. Single. Day. If loving sweetness is wrong, I don't wanna be right.
Check out the recipe here. Long live the Chocolate Chip Cookie AND the Cast Iron Skillet!
WAIT! I almost forgot to tell you! I added butterscotch chips in my version. Excellent choice by-the-way. If you're a fan of the buttery fantasy, throw them in! You won't be disappointed.
