Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease your 10 or 12 inch oven safe skillet. Set aside.
In a bowl whisk the dry ingredients: flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl beat the softened unsalted butter with the sugars at medium-high speed until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes. Add the eggs and mix until combined. Whisk in the vanilla extract.
Add the dry ingredients over the wet ingredients and mix until combined.
Mix in the chocolate chips using a rubber spatula or spoon. Spread the cookie dough in an even layer into your prepared skillet.
Bake for 30-35 minutes (if using a 12 inch skillet) or for 35-40 minutes (if using a 10 inch skillet). The cookie will be brown on the edges and slightly brown on top. Let the cookie cool slightly on a wire rack before digging in. Serve straight from the skillet or slice it. Top with ice cream and my bourbon caramel sauce.
