I’d categorize my family as cookie monsters. And the bigger the cookie, the better. This Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie was a huge hit x 4!

 Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie 

About a week after I whipped these up for dessert, the hubby, in a most serious tone, commented, “You know that skillet chocolate chip cookie you made? You can make it again anytime.” He is a chocolate chip cookie aficionado. They must be chewy and chock full of chocolate chips. Semi-sweet preferred.

This was not rocket science, just an easy recipe in a new vessel. Using mini cast iron skillets allowed each recipient to have their own personal pan cookie, but this recipe can also be baked in a single skillet and cut into wedges.

Use Your Favorite Skillet or Mini Skillets

I used four 5-inch cast-iron skillets this time, but you can utilize what you have at home. A 9-inch skillet makes a really thick cookie, and the wedges look like slices of pie! A 12-inch will make a thinner cookie, just adjust your cooking time.

The cookie should be golden brown and set in the middle. I don’t mind them slightly underdone—that just makes them gooier! If you prefer a variety of chocolate chips or nuts in your chocolate chip cookies, go right ahead and tweak to your preferences.

I love to serve these slightly warm with a scoop of vanilla and drizzle of fudge sauce. I have a feeling your family will ask for a repeat performance from you, too.

We prefer our skillet cookie slightly underdone. If you want a less gooey center, cook for a few minutes longer.

  5. Cool ! I’m gonna bake cookies next time using my once-used cast iron skillet 😀 Nobody in her right mind could resist that thick cookies ! Lizzy , just love the last photo 😉

  6. You look great in that jacket. We have no qualms about raw cookie dough. Maybe we should? I always go for the skillet cookie when I need cookies but am too lazy to make the individuals.

  7. Shhh, don’t tell anyone, but I don’t have a cast-iron skillet! (other than my LC grill pan). I’ve made chocolate chip cookies in a jelly-roll pan, but need to try this thicker version.

    I liked Albion on FB and pinned the yoga pants:

    You look adorable in the jacket!

  8. I’m always on the hunt for chicken recipes, and I love chicken pot pie:

  18. Lookin’ good, Liz, in your white hoodie! And hells yeah to this skillet cookie. Seeing all the skillet cookies on the blogs lately has been driving me crazy! I have a beautiful lodge cast iron pan at home that I bought over a year ago and have never used. I’m nuts, right?! I’m intimidated by the seasoning aspect but I’ve been dying to use it. First thing I’m making is this cookie. And then I’ll cry because my body isn’t fit enough to wear one of these adorable swimsuits!

  19. Oh, Dudette would love that cookie…though I’d have to use the milk chocolate over semi-sweet. Very nice. It looks amazing.

  20. You make a great model, Liz! I love the look of that workout jacket. I bought one very similar from Lulu Lemon and the good news there is that it was on sale. Very necessary at the moment seeing as we’re in winter. I love the look of this cookie that’s served like a slice of cake and I’m so happy this one has the thumbs up from your husband xx

  23. OMG, does that look amazing? My friend Barb, from Profiteroles and Ponytails told me about a skillet chocolate chip cookie she and her hubby had in a restaurant a few years ago but I’ve never seen a recipe for it. It looks just perfect, chewy, chocolatey…did you serve it warm? I’ve got four little square cast iron skillets that would be perfect for this!

  24. Lis, this brings me back to the days of when I mad cc cookies in a pizza pan for my kids to take to school on their birthdays. They were so good. I love cc cookies, too!

  25. Need to get this skillet asap! Looks delicious!

  39. Hubby’s are usually right when they are all out on a recipe and this chocolate chip skillet cookie looks hearty enough for a man. However, if you look at the slope of the slices it looks like beautiful women’s high heeled pumps. I think you are the cutest little model of the bunch!

  40. Lizzy, this is an interesting cookie! Looks like a cake 🙂

  41. Liz, after this gorgeous sweet treat you show us a bathing suit??? Frankly, even this hasn’t spoilt my appetite 😉 The skillet cookie looks fabulous.

  60. Yummy! Hot cookie with cold ice cream!

  61. Liz- I’m a little confused about recipe. In your paragraph you say you used 4 5-inch skillets, but in the directions it says 4 9- inch skillets. Before I order the 5 inch skillets from Amazon, I just wanted to make sure that’s the size you used. So cute! Can’t wait to try this!

    Many thanks!

    • Hi, Lyn! I’ve been the typo queen today. You’re right, that should be 4 5-inch skillets, but you can easily use just one 9 or even 10-inch skillet if you’d like. But the minis are definitely cuter!

  62. I made this recipe for our recent thanksgiving dinner and it was awesome! Thanks again Liz, XO
