Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray eight (3½-in.) cast-iron skillets with nonstick spray; set aside.
Thick, heavy cast iron skillets distribute heat evenly to produce well-browned, nicely textured baked goods. They work like magic to give chocolate chip cookies nice crusty edges while the centers stay soft and gooey. And there’s nothing more fun than serving individual cookies from mini-size skillets.
