Skillet cookie? Yes! A warm, chewy chocolate chip cookie that is baked in and served from a cast iron skillet. Get your fork, and don't forget the ice cream!
Today is brought to you by the letter C. As in Cookie
Giant skillet cookie. Mmm.
Said in my best googly eyed Cookie Monster impression.
I was watching last week's Top Chef Allstars and was happy to see the Sesame Street characters on there. Not because I think that our Top Chefs skills aren't far and above Sesame Street, but because I'm 99% sure it made some of them heroes to their children. It was also neat to see muppets making grown chefs in a serious competition laugh. Whether this says something about the direction of Top Chef or not, we'll leave to another debate. Either way, I thought it was fun.
The rest of the episode, we won't talk about, because we have a chocolate chip skillet cookie to bake!
Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie
Discovered on Tracey's Culinary Adventures originally from Martha Stewart
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¾ cup (1 ½ sticks, 12 tablespoons) unsalted butter, at room temperature
- ½ cup sugar
- ¾ cup packed light brown sugar
- 1 large egg, at room temperature
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 ½ cups (about 9 oz) semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 F.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugars until the mixture is light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla extract, mixing until well incorporated. With the mixer on low speed, add the flour mixture and beat just until combined. Finally, add the chocolate chips and mix to distribute.
Transfer the dough to a 10-inch ovenproof skillet, and press to flatten in an even layer on the bottom of the pan. Bake until the edges of the cookie are brown and the top is golden, about 40-45 minutes. Don't overbake; it will continue to cook a few minutes out of the oven. Transfer to a wire rack to cool slightly before serving.
*I got the idea to use the iron skillet from Tracey in the post that I discovered this beauty on, but any skillet would work.
And what is this I hear about Cookie Monster only being allowed to have cookies as a sometimes snack? He's the freakin Cookie Monster! Leave the rest of the muppets to be responsible. :p
PS. Sorry the pics aren't great but this is really one hell of a skillet cookie! Try it! I promise you'll love it!

Whoa. That looks awesome. o.o Not right since I've been craving chocolate chip cookies for like weeks. lol
I WISH I HAD A CAST IRON SKILLET!!! This recipe is to die for!! I want a piece so bad!
Vicki @ Wilde in the Kitchen says
Oh the good old days when I was little and Cookie Monster was allowed to binge on cookies all day long... I would like a slice of this giant cookie, please!
OHMYGOSH! What a great idea! You are a genius! No joke. I would have a hard time not eating a lot of that giant cookie...its only one cookie right?! haha 😉
Clare @ Mrs Multitasker says
Yum it looks perfect! A friend of mine was just asking me if I had a good recipe for chocolate chip cookie cake!
Yum! It tickles me by being made in a skillet. 😉 I'm glad I'm not the only one driven nuts by the whole "cookies are a sometimes snack"....you are toying with icons from my youth people! 😉
Mary at n00bcakes says
I'm a huge fan of cookie cakes, but I've never made one before. Never thought to make it in a pan - how about that! Thanks for the recipe; I can't wait to give this a shot.
Holy... that looks amazing. I can only imagine how perfectly it would bake up in the cast iron skillet! All butter and crispy on the edges. My cast iron skillet is a bit dirty right now but I'm going to clean it just so i can make these.
I want one! I want one! This is a brilliant idea!
COOK-IE!! That was in a cookie monster voice in case you were wondering!!
Dionne Baldwin says
I wish we were neighbors. And by the way, these pics are beautiful as always and that cookie looks insane. Cut me a slab of this cookie and I'll be such a happy girl!
I thought that was really awesome they had the Sesame Street charactars on Top Chef Allstars. I grew up with the Muppets way back in the day. Elmo cracked me up for once...heehee.
Lindsay @Eat, Knit, Grow says
Yum! That looks so delicious! Giant cookie.
The cookie looks delicious! I can't believe they sent Angelo home!! Can't wait to watch tonight's episode.
Lindsey at Burn Me Not says
That cookie looks divine! I wish I could reenact cookie monster right now and shovel this whole thing in my mouth with two hands while crumbs fall messily all over the place. Yum!
Dulce Dough says
Love that this is made in a skillet! Looks wonderful!
Belinda @zomppa says
Oh, GIMME GIMME GIMME!! Need big giant milk for me!!
Leanna @ Raptortoe.com says
Um.. Me. I want a giant cookie!
ooooo this is my kinda cookie.
I liked that challenge on top chef. it kinda makes you think that chefs are people too, not these hot shots like they look like on TV, and make me realize there are 3 million blogger's out there that could cookie kill them in a competition like that haha 🙂
I think you'd give em a run for their money! take care
I, like so many children in America, grew up on Sesame Street. To this day, I still see Cookie Monster in my head when I pull out a tray of cookies. Thank you for sharing your words and this tempting recipe! And thank you for your kind words on my blog. They brightened my day.
Kate @ Diethood.com says
The one word that came to mind when I saw the first photo was, Coooookieeeee with Cookie Monster's voice. 🙂
I would love a piece of that cake or cookie ... I would have never thought to make a giant one in my iron skillet... brilliant!
This looks awesome! I use cast iron skillets all the time for cooking on the stovetop but for some reason have never baked in them. Not anymore! I can't wait to try your recipe. Thanks for sharing. Cookie Monster would definitely approve!
A little bit of everything says
the photos are stunning as usual and the cookie is a killer. C is for Cut me some, please
thanks for sharing Kita, hope you'll have a wonderful Thursday
p.s I'm guessing you're watching Top Chefs right now.
Christi @ Love From The Oven says
That looks delicious! Nothing beats a giant chocolate chip cookie! Especially a hot one!
I loved the Sesame Street characters on Top Chef! Definitely better than some of the guest judges they've had in the past 🙂 Your cookie turned out perfectly - I'm glad you enjoyed it!
Lauren at Keep It Sweet says
This is definitely one of my favorite ways to use a skillet:-)
This looks great! (And I think your pictures are awesome!)
Mateja @Indulging Life says
Cookie- the bigger the better and yours looks devine! Thank you for sharing, have a nice weekend 🙂
If my kids see your post, I know they will coerce me into baking this tomorrow...how yummy, Kita!
Lindsey @ Gingerbread Bagels says
Loved the episode! And of course I loved Fabio's recap of the episode and how he called the Cookie Monster, the Blu Monster! haha. This skillet baked chocolate chip cookie looks sooo insanely good. I want to take the whole thing and hide in a corner. Just me, the cookie and...Fabio. 😉
I love the presentation of the cookie in a skillet. It looks amazing.
Mary @ Delightful Bitefuls says
Mmmm!! I made something similar to this a few weeks ago and it was out of this world delicious!! Yours looks soooo fab!
The Mom Chef ~ Taking on Magazines One Recipe at a Time says
Ok, so I'm going to have C Is For Cookie running through my head for the rest of the day, thankyouverymuch. Dudette says I must make this cookie soon; so I must. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Looks great to me - yum! I love skillet baking too. 🙂
