Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

Glorious chocolate plus your favorite cookie dough results in this crowd favorite

A cast iron skillet is excellent for baking cookies because it conducts heat evenly throughout the pan. The hot bottom and sides produces a wonderful crust, while allowing the cookie center to stay soft and chewy. You can replace the chocolate chips with white or dark chocolate chips. Or use peanut butter chips for an even more indulgent dessert. 


1 1/2 cups + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1 cup chocolate chips

1/2 cup butter, melted

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup + 1 teaspoon granulated sugar

1 egg

1 egg yolk

2 teaspoons vanilla extract


1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9-inch skillet with butter. Set aside.


2. Mix flour, baking soda, salt and chocolate chips together. Set aside.


3. Mix melted butter and sugars together. Then add egg, egg yolk and vanilla extract. Mix until incorporated. 


4. Add flour and chocolate chips mixture. Mix together until there are no traces of flour. Don’t over mix.


5. Spread dough evenly in the skillet and bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until edges begin to turn golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool and serve.
