Ingredients for a Delicious Skillet Cookie

  • Baking soda: Acts as a leavening agent, helping the cookie dough rise and become light and fluffy during baking.
  • Unsalted butter: Adds richness and flavor to the cookie dough while also contributing to the soft and tender texture.
  • Granulated sugar: Sweetens the cookie dough and helps create a crispy exterior while adding moisture and tenderness.
  • Brown sugar: Provides a deeper flavor and chewy texture to the cookie, enhancing the overall taste and sweetness.
  • Large egg: Binds the ingredients together, adding moisture and structure to the cookie dough for a cohesive texture.
  • Vanilla extract: Enhances the flavor profile of the cookie, adding a warm and aromatic essence to complement the chocolate chips.
  • Chocolate chips: Melty pockets of sweetness that add bursts of chocolate flavor and gooey texture to the cookie dough.
