This Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie is the fastest and easiest recipe to make a giant cookie! It’s the perfect shareable dessert dish and it tastes like heaven with ice cream on top!

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.

Nope.

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.
PhotobucketWhat’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…
PhotobucketPress 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…
PhotobucketThen 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.

It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

  1. This is one of my favorite things to eat!!! Right out of the cast iron pan!
    Chocolate Chip Cookies are heaven on earth. Especially undercooked.

    BTW, I really wish I hadn’t looked at the Strange Addiction link you posted… *blech* LOL

    THis is much more appetizing. Makes me drool…

    1. shelly

      Yes! I know, it’s so cheap! I didn’t buy a pre-seasoned one, which seem to be a little more expensive, which may be the reason that I didn’t love it at first…I had to do all my own “seasoning” but now I seriously couldn’t live without it. It’s one on my most favorite kitchen things 🙂

  2. Yum! Buying a skillet like now, is a great idea! I have never had one and this super easy and amazing looking dessert is reason enough to finally buy one! I love the wooden spoon. My KitchenAid may be my friend, but I still love my wooden spoon and use it all the time.

    You should do a segment titled, “How to love your iron skillet enough to marry it,” because I dont like mine. I can’t seem to get it seasoned. Wish they came pre-seasoned! I’d pay for that! 🙂 Help!

    1. shelly

      They actually do make them pre-seasoned!! I hated mine at first.. everything stuck to it and i just couldn’t get it right! Just keep trying and don’t wash it with soap and water…sounds gross, but I swear it! Now it’s all I use…I promise 🙂

    2. Larissa

      Yes, they do come pre-seasoned!! Just follow the directions and don’t use soap…just a scrub brush and HOT water to scrape out the food. Then, rub a coating of olive oil on it. If you use canola oil, it can get kinda sticky. Olive oil doesn’t. I have a big one and a smaller one and I use both all the time. They were originally to be used for camping. Well, they live in the house in the winter and they go back and forth all summer. 🙂
      Love the skillet cookie…under-cooked yummmmmm.

    3. Lora

      Hi I saw your post and I wanted you to know they do sell pre seasoned cast iron skillets…..Cracker Barrel sells yhem…before you use it rub it generously with bacon fat…After you use it wash with hot water NO soap. After your skillet has been used and treated this way you can use a little soap. After it’s clean rub some shortening on the inside and it’s ready for the next use. Hope this helps you!

      I felt the same way as you the first few times I used mine so I only browned bacon and ground beef in it. Scrub with warm water and a scrubber. Dry it the wipe it with oil. I love avocado oil. After you do this a few times. It will be sparkling and you will love it. Also when using it on the stove top cook at medium or just under. I found I was cooking stuff way too high and unhappy with the results. Save your bacon fat to use in your pan too!

  4. Oh my gosh. That picture of the dough! I don’t have a skillet. I need to buy one but…. okay, no. You’ve inspired me to buy one! I’m off to do some online shopping now. And the ice cream! I have a bowl full of spinach right next to me that’s been sitting there for hours. If I had this cookie I would have some motivation to eat the spinach, but I don’t have this cookie. And so the spinach shall continue to rot. Having warm chocolate chip cookies available = vegetable eating.

  5. Crystal

    I knew I had that cast iron skillet for a reason and you just gave me the answer! I am a cookie addict but have never thought to use my cast iron skillet to bake one in. Pure GENUIS!!!

  6. I am ashamed to admit that when I was younger and not into cooking someone gave me a cast iron skillet and I SOLD it. I never thought I’d use it. Oh how foolish I was!

  7. Ooh, I love skillet cookies. They make my life complete. The one I make gets mixed right in the skillet, so it’s like a dishwashing dream come true, too. 🙂
