This giant Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie recipe is made in just one bowl, no stand mixer needed! Big enough to share, delicious enough to eat alone. Top with a scoop of ice cream for an easy dessert.
Alice from Hip Foodie Mom posted a picture of this Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie along with the recipe on Instagram two weeks ago. I gave it a quick double-tap and then continued on with my scrolling. As the day went on though I couldn’t stop thinking about it. Being nine months pregnant leaves you highly susceptible to the power of suggestion when it comes to food, and suddenly, I needed to have this cookie a.s.a.p.!
I made it later that evening after James and the kids had gone to church and I was home alone. Because let’s be honest, I had no intention of sharing this giant cookie with anyone. I also had no intention of posting the recipe here but then I made it for a second time in the same week and decided that this deliciousness needed to be shared. And by shared I mean that you need to make your own… because I’m still not sharing mine.
Alice made hers with half semi-sweet chips and half peanut butter chips, but I didn’t have any peanut butter ones so I went for all chocolate chip. You could easily toss in whatever you have on hand; it would be delicious with white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts!! It reminds me of the infamous “pizookie” at one of my favorite restaurants.
Dig into this giant chocolate chip skillet cookie.
- 6 tbsp unsalted butter at room temperature
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup brown sugar packed
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup + 1 tbsp flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine butter and both sugars in a large bowl.
Stir in egg and vanilla.
Add in the flour, baking soda, and salt; mix well.
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Spread cookie dough into 8-10in cast iron skillet.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown and center is set.
You want the center to be set, but be careful not to over bake. The cookie will continue to bake in the skillet after being removed from the oven. Store in an air-tight container.
