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.Print

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