And the Winner is… + Announcing a NEW Thing!

So awhile ago we hinted at New (and renew) and Spring and Green. We’ve talked about Spring and Green already. This week it’s time to share about something NEW. Not just a new little item, or a new little fact, this new thing has been in the works for a long while.


Introducing The Country Cupboard blog! Check it out at Sign up to follow, search for past recipes or tips and share it with your friends. We’re excited to finally have a web presence.

Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie

8 servings 32 min
March is birthday month in our family. Let’s celebrate with an easy, delicious dessert.
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg and 1 egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup sprinkles, if desired
  • Sea salt, for sprinkling before baking, if desired

*All ingredients available at The Country Cupboard.

    1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease a 12-inch cast iron skillet and set aside.
    2. In a large bowl, combine melted butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Stir until smooth. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla and mix until combined.
    3. Add the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. Stir until flour disappears. Stir in the chocolate chips and sprinkles, if using.
    4. Spread batter evenly in prepared cast iron skillet. Sprinkle the top with a little sea salt, if desired. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until golden brown. Don’t over bake, you want the cookie to be slightly gooey. Remove from oven and let cool on a wire cooling rack for 10-15 minutes. Serve with ice cream, if desired.
    5. Note-you can use a 10-inch skillet or pie plate. The cookie will be a thicker so you will have to bake it a little longer.
