CHOCOLATE CHIP-CHERRY CAST-IRON COOKIE
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 sticks (12 tablespoons) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt or milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2/3 cup dark chocolate chips
1/3 cup dried tart cherries
Ice cream, for serving, optional
Total Time: 1 hr 5 min
Prep: 20 min
Inactive: 30 min
Cook: 15 min
Special equipment: Eight 3-inch cast-iron skillets
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Combine the flour, oats, baking soda and salt in a large bowl and set aside. In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the yogurt and vanilla and mix on medium-low speed. Add the egg and stir to combine. Add the dry ingredients, and mix on medium-low speed until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips and cherries by hand. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Using a 1-inch cookie scoop, scoop the dough into balls. Add one ball to each mini cast-iron skillet. Bake until the cookies are golden brown around the edges and soft in the center, 13 to 15 minutes. (Alternatively, drop the dough balls onto parchment-lined baking sheetsabout 8 per sheetand bake for the same amount of time.)
Refrigerate or freeze any leftover cookie dough for later use.
