christmas, cookies & cast iron

By the time the holidays roll around and I’m pulling out my cozy sweaters and fuzzy blankets, my cravings for home-baked goodies really kick in. When I was growing up, my mom always filled a plethora of antique tins and jars with cookies, fudge, cheese straws, and fruitcake for us to enjoy throughout the season and to share with other family and friends. Some of my fondest memories are of my sister and I helping her create all these treats. This year, I’ll be sharing that simple joy with my nephews when we bake up the Cranberry Oat Wedge Cookies, and maybe a few more sweet treats, from our “Cast Iron Cheer” story on page 63. While we’re at it, I’m excited to add a few new skillet pies to my…

4 essential skillet cookie tips

1. Nearly any cookie dough can be baked into a large skillet cookie. Simply press your favorite dough into a skillet, add an additional 5 minutes (or more) to your bake time, and cook until desired doneness. 2. If you have a well-seasoned cast-iron skillet, you shouldn’t have to grease the baking surface. However, we spray our pans for a little extra insurance. 3. Though preheating your pan for cornbread results in a deliciously crispy crust, this technique is a definite don’t for cookies. Start with a cold batch of cookie dough in a room temperature skillet for optimal results. 4. Deliver a warm skillet cookie with a pint of ice cream for a holiday treat any recipient will love.…

cast iron use & care

SEASONED KEEP THEM CLEAN Be sure to clean your pans as soon as they’re cool enough to handle. Scrub gently with a stiff-bristle brush or a non-scratch scouring pad. Water leads to rust, so avoid submerging your cast-iron cookware. As to whether to use soap—that’s up to you. We avoid it when possible to protect the seasoned surface. KEEP THEM DRY After rinsing, it’s crucial to dry your cookware completely. Wipe dry with a clean kitchen towel, then apply a very thin coat of vegetable oil, rubbing it into the surface. Heat on the stovetop over medium-low heat or in the oven at 300° until dry, about 10 minutes. Let cool; wipe surface with a clean kitchen towel, and heat for 5 more minutes. RESPECT YOUR CAST IRON Taking care of your cookware means understanding its…
