Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookies

I spent the bulk of last week in Portland. It was my first time staying at The Nines, smack in the middle of downtown. I was describing my room to someone and heard myself mentioning a long turquoise settee, a four-foot chandelier, and a snack bar menu with lovely fonts. I was in town to attend this, and was lucky to catch some time with local friends in between sessions {thanks Kim, Katherine, and Nancye!). I meant to tell Kim Boyce that I’ve been baking a skillet version of her celebrated Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies lately.

It’s for those days when I’m feeling extra lazy. Instead of shaping individual cookies, I spread the cookie dough across an oven-proof pan or skillet, and bake it. You can cut the finished cookies into wedges or squares or whatever shape you like. You can also bake individual versions in tiny skillets or these tiny cast-iron Staubs. Served warm with a little dollop of vanilla ice cream – you get the idea. They’re fun. Now, if you’re more of a traditionalist when it comes to the shaping of cookies, you can see a version of them on Molly’s site, and on Culinate as well.

I kept pretty close to downtown for most of this Portland stay, and there were a number of new-to-me places I visited. I’ve updated this Portland page too, so info doesn’t sprawl across too many pages if any of you are planning a visit. And at some point I’ll get organized enough to get it all onto a single page.

So, a couple new Portland recs. After arriving in town, I hopped a bus to the Upright Brewery Tasting Room. The next day, Kim turned me on to Ziba’s Pitas. These are unlike any pitas you’ve had. I only wish I could convince Ziba to roll her cart south to California. Coffee was great at itty-bitty Spella Caffe’, and I picked up a few gifts at Alma Chocolate. I had a really nice dinner at Grüner one night as well – perfect salad {with pretzel croutons!) and unbelievable buckwheat spätzle with black trumpet mushrooms.

C’est tout for now. Hope you all are enjoying your week. -h
