Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Sometimes things don’t turn out as planned.

It happens to the best of us.

This was not supposed to be a giant cookie in a skillet.


It was supposed to be a jacked-up, cobbler-ish type-deal.

When all was said and done, it was less cobbler-ish and more jacked-up.

Not jacked-up in a bad, My Strange Addiction way…

Jacked-up in a heck yeah, I-need-a, gimme kinda way.

I know I’m not reinventing the wheel here, but this was just too much delicious not to share.

I’m a giver.

How to Make a Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

What’s also pretty super-duper awesome about this cookie is that you mix it up in one bowl.  All you need is a bowl, a skillet and a wooden spoon.

It’s like the olden days when people wrote with feathers and used candles for light, not smells.

See…one bowl…wooden spoon…

Press it evenly into your skillet.

By the way, if you don’t own a cast iron skillet you need to get one. Like now.
You won’t love it at first. But stick with it. You will want to marry it soon enough…

Then bake. And under-cook the heck out of it.

Eat it out of the pan, or serve it with ice cream.
Either way is the right choice.

    I’ve made a lot of skillet cookies and this one ranks at the top! Delicious flavor, the right amount of gooey! It says 4 servings, I’d say 8… ?

  2. Made this last night and it was deliciously gooey and the perfect dessert served with a scoop ice cream {chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream because you can never have enough cookie}!

  3. That cookie was great!!!! I’m putting a little write up about it on my blog later today (with credit back to you, of course)! Thanks for providing such a great recipe!

  4. Best way to season a cast iron pan is to cook bacon in it more than once and to have some patience. Best non stick pan ever!

  5. Just made this & its amazing! Did with half chocolate chip & half butterscotch! Love your website. If only it was an app 😉

  6. These were amazing! I can’t even tell you the number of tears that fell during the consumption of these skillet cookies. I served them with gelato and they went over like gang busters!

    My choco chip skillet cookies last week was a fail because I didn’t followed instructions AND I didn’t have a cast iron skillet– haha! But I followed your recipe closely and used my oven toaster. The hubby and my 1yo loved the cookies! Thanks!

  8. OMG I was having a sweet craving last night really bad and made this at 10:00PM. Get everything out to make it only to discover I only had 1 egg!!!!!! I still made it and it turned out great!

    I can’t remember ever making anything sweet in my cast iron skillet, but I’m going to give this a try. I’ve pinned it to my “Sweetness” Pinterest board – thanks for sharing!

  10. I grew up using cast iron fry pans..( unseasoned), my grandmother would rub crisco shortening into the pan ( wash in warm water first, co soap) and put in a 400 degree oven for 11/2 – 2 hours. after that she let it cool. It was seasoned…they r EXCELLENT for fried chicken..and get better with each use…I use the PLASTIC scrubbers to wash them.

  11. I have three mini iron cast skillets and would love to try to do a mini version of this! Any recommendations on the amount of time to cook a smaller (personal sized) skillet cookie?
