    1. One traditional sized cast iron skillet may be used. Cooking time may be longer.
    2. This is the same dough we use for regular chocolate chip cookies. Just add scoops to a baking sheet and bake for about 7 minutes or until done. 
    3. To make the "Peanut Butter Cup" version, add chopped PB cups to directly to dough in skillet before baking. Top with vanilla ice cream when done and drizzle with chocolate syrup and warmed peanut butter.
    4. To make the "S'mores" version, add press graham cracker pieces directly into dough in skillet before baking. Once the cookie is baked, add about 1/2 cup mini marshmallows to the top and broil for about 1 minute or until desired toastiness is reached. Top with vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup. 
    5. Make sure your cast iron is seasoned well before baking!
