This Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie is the perfect dessert for sharing. It is a giant cookie baked in a skillet to give it a crispy crunchy outside but an ooey gooey inside. Once it is baked and topped with ice cream and chocolate we like to put the skillet in the middle of the table, give everyone a fork, and dig in! If you love cookies, then you need to try this recipe.


The main ingredient in this recipe is cookie dough. You can make your own, or you can also use store-bought cookie dough. We’ve tried lots of different recipes but we love using our bakery chocolate chip cookie recipe (link below). If you’re using our recipe, then you’ll need:

  • Butter
  • Sugar
  • Brown Sugar
  • Eggs
  • Vanilla Extract
  • All Purpose Flour
  • Baking Soda
  • Baking Powder

If you are using our cookie dough recipe, then follow these simple instructions to prepare the dough.

  • To start, in the large bowl of a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugars together.
  • Then, stir in the eggs and vanilla.
  • After the eggs and vanilla are combined, in a separate bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients.
  • While mixing on low speed, spoon the dry ingredients into the wet batter. Mix until just incorporated.
  • Then, fold in the chocolate chips.

Recipe Tip

A skillet cookie in a cast iron pan.

Cast iron skillets hold heat well after they are taken out of the oven. Because of this, you want to take the skillet cookie out right when it turns golden brown. If it cooks longer than that, then it will overcook in the pan after you take it out.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to store leftover skillet cookies?

If there are any leftovers, then you can store the cookie in an airtight container. If there is ice cream on top, then try to scoop it off and then store it in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

How to reheat a skillet cookie?

You can reheat a serving of skillet cookie by placing it on a microwave-safe dish and microwaving it for 10-20 seconds.

Is a skillet cookie the same as a pizookie?

Yes! These are just like what you would find at a restaurant like BJ’s that serves pizookies.

What size skillet should I use?

I used a 10-inch skillet for 1 pound of cookie dough. If you have a smaller skillet you’ll have to use less cookie dough.

I have to admit, I am a cookie girl. I enjoy cakes and brownies, but a cookie is the way to my heart. If you love our Skillet Cookie recipe, then try some of our other delicious cookie recipes!
