<article itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Recipe"> <section itemprop="description"> <p>Sometimes, you just need a cookie. Specifically, a perfect chocolate chip cookie—crispy at the edges, chewy at the center, loaded with molten chocolate and deliciously decadent. But at the same time, you don’t want to stray from your low-carb lifestyle.</p> <p>What’s a cookie monster to do?</p> <p>Make up a tasty keto skillet cookie fit for company—or a serious craving!</p> </section> <section> <header>What Is a Skillet Cookie?</header> <p>Skillet cookies are the perfect lazy person’s dessert. Instead of going through the hassle of portioning out individual cookies, you simply bake one large cookie in a metal skillet. Cut it in wedges like a pizza and you’ve got dessert for a crowd, with minimal effort.</p> <p>Better still, you get the perfect ratio of crispy edges to chewy interior, with plenty of melted chocolate chips to go around. All without having to carefully monitor a regular baking tray of cookies, which can go from underbaked to burned in a flash. Because a skillet cookie is larger, you have a bigger margin of <i>delicious success</i>.</p> <div class="sub-head">Why Bake with Cast Iron?</div> <p>Cast iron holds heat extremely well. That means that it’s slow to get hot, but also slow to cool down. It cooks food more evenly than many other kinds of pans and it is ideal for getting a consistent result from baked goods.</p> <p>Using a cast iron skillet to make this keto skillet cookie recipe helps the cookie to rise more evenly and cook consistently, giving you a golden brown finish, crackly edges, and tender, moist interior.</p> </section> <section> <header>Can You Make a Skillet Cookie into Regular Cookies?</header> <p>If you have a little extra time or want to pre-portion your cookies to make sure you don’t eat the whole thing all by yourself, you can easily turn a skillet cookie into normal cookies. Just scoop tablespoons full of the dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and press slightly to flatten. Make sure to leave about an inch on all sides to allow the cookies to expand.</p> <p>Bake at 350&deg;F for 12-16 minutes or until the edges are just beginning to turn golden. Remove from the oven before the cookies look completely done, as they’ll continue to firm up as they cool.</p> </section> <hr class="divider-15 divider-thick mx-auto"> <section class="recipe"> <header itemprop="name">Keto Skillet Cookie</header> <div class="prep"> <span> <meta itemprop="prepTime" content="PT15M">Prep Time: 15 minutes</span> <span> <meta itemprop="cookTime" content="PT35M">Cooking Time: 20 minutes</span> <span> <meta itemprop="recipeYield">Serves: 12</span> </div> <div class="sub-head">Ingredients:</div> <ul class="ingredients no-bullet"> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac12; cup butter</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 ice cube</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 large egg</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 teaspoon vanilla extract</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac14; cup granulated monk fruit sweetener</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">2 cups almond flour</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac12; teaspoon baking powder</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac12; teaspoon salt</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">8 squares <a target="_blank" href="https://www.warriormade.com/content/diet/keto-chocolate" rel="noreferrer">85% cacao dark chocolate</a>, chopped (or &frac12; cup sugar-free chocolate chips)</li> </ul> <hr class="divider-50 divider-medium"> <div class="sub-head">Instructions:</div> <ol itemprop="recipeInstructions"> <li>Preheat oven to 350&deg;F. <li>In a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter until it begins to bubble and foam.
