Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Skillet Cookie
1/2 C. butter, softened
1/2 C. firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 C. granulated sugar
1 t. vanilla
3/4 C. all-purpose flour
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
1 1/2 C. oats, quick or old-fashioned, uncooked
1 C. semisweet chocolate chips
Heat oven to 350° F.
In large bowl, beat butter and sugars with electric mixer until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; beat well. In small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Add to butter mixture; mix well. Stir in oats and chocolate chips; mix well.
Press dough evenly into bottom of 10-inch nonstick ovenproof skillet. Bake 20 minutes or until top is lightly browned (do not overbake as cookie will continue to bake after it is removed from oven). Cool about 10 minutes.
Cut into 8 to 16 wedges. Serve with ice cream and caramel topping or chocolate syrup, if desired.
