cookie questions

frankc623frankc623 Posts: 163
Well tomorrow is my wifes birthday and she always requests a "cookie cake"....basically a large chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich. I'm debating on whether I should bake the cookies on the egg or in the oven? I don't want the cookies tasting like charcoal or anything like that. Anybody bake cookies on the egg? Any suggestions? I would probably end up baking the cookies on a pan...unless I buy parchment paper to bake them on the pizza stone...

    Do a cookie cake in a cast iron skillet. The Martha Stewart recipe is awesome and has been replicated on blogs as ad infinitum. I made it and it is fantastic.

    This is another that does all the mixing in the pan. I have made this one too. It is good but it's a pain in the ass to stir when my KA mixer does it for me.

    Oops. Sorry, I stopped comprehending at "cookie cake" and missed the ice cream part.

    @Eggcelsior thanks for the skillet recipe, I think im going to try that! Just one question...whats the best way to clean a CI skillet? I just cooked peppers & onions in it the other night and I don't want the cookies tasting like them! My wife wouldn't be too happy!

    I will "scrub" it with kosher salt and a paper towel then rinse. Typically, I might get some taste in the first batch of whatever I make the next day. I'll eat those(pancakes after onions the night before) and no other batch will. Clean it and try to toast some bread or a tortilla in butter. This may help too.

    I may do one too. You gave me the itch.

    @Eggcelsior - did you have any problems with the cookie sticking to the CI?

    @DomCal - what are you cooking this weekend?

    No. It lifts out no problem(Thanks, butter). If you have a thin metal spatula to cut with, use that. A knife can cut into the seasoning of the pan.

    It could also be cooked in a spring form pan. I seem to be using mine more and more lately and wondering why I haven't used it more. ;;)
