Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie

My readers have spoken and this recipe is up next by special request.  Two things I love when it comes to baking: #1 finding a way to not dirty up as many dishes and #2 finding a way to keep my hands from being covered in gooey cookie dough, although I don’t mind the occasional salmonella-infested taste test……….

Well, this Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe reduces the overall mess by at least 1/3 and it’s also delicious to boot, so that makes me more than 1/3 happier!!! The best way to describe this cookie is that it is the deep dish of cookies!  In scouring through the treasures at Miss Lucille’s Marketplace, I found a little 4-inch skillet and cookies immediately came to mind.  It’s just not big enough for a big ole meal, but it is the perfect size for something sugary and sweet for after dinner!!!  So, here you go!!

Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie

Put those seasoned cast iron skillets to work with something sweet like this chocolate chip cookie. It is the deep dish of cookies!! Adapted from Lemon Sugar


  • 1 stick unsalted butter (8 tablespoons)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups flour, sifted
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 - 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or chunks


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In an 8-inch cast iron skillet (I used a 4-inch and made the recipe in two batches), melt butter over medium heat on the stove. Add granulated sugar and brown sugar and stir with a wooden spoon to combine. Set aside for 5 minutes and allows sugar to melt.
  2. In a small bowl, beat egg. Once sugar has melted pour about 1/4 cup into eggs and whisk to combine. Add back to skillet and stir well.
  3. Carefully add flour, salt & baking soda. Stir well to combine.
  4. Add vanilla and chocolate chips and stir to combine,
  5. Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
  6. Serve warm with chocolate or vanilla bean ice cream.


Mixing the ingredients in the skillet can get a little messy, so after melting the butter and sugar it is okay to mix the ingredients in a large bowl and return to the skillet.
