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!

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.

  12. 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!

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