Don’t you love when a recipe comes together just perfectly? The idea for this Cookies and Cream Skillet Cookie hit me this afternoon and I flittered around my kitchen whipping it up only for it to come out PERFECTLY! Y’all, it was like magic and I knew I had to get it out there as soon as I could. I thought this recipe up, developed it, shot it, edited the photos, and wrote this blog post all in less than three hours and now I’m giving myself a big old pat on the back while I munch on this skillet cookie.

  • The different textures. Because it takes skillet cookies longer to cook than normal cookies you end up with a crunchy edge and a very soft and gooey center. It is the best of all cookie world in one Cookies and Cream Skillet Cookie package!
  • The high Oreo to cookie ratio. I made sure to include PLENTY of crushed Oreos in this cookie so you are getting some in every single bite!
  • It’s a giant cookie. We always thought it didn’t get better than a warm cookie, but a giant warm cookie is definitely better!
  • All-purpose flour. Measuring the flour correctly is very important. I suggest weighing your flour out (I use this scale). If you want to use a measuring cup, make sure you spoon the flour into the cup and level it off with a knife. Don’t use the cup to scoop directly from the flour
  • Baking soda. This will give our skillet cookie the rise we are looking for.
  • Salt. Salt is a must in baked goods. It will help to balance out the sweet and improve the overall flavor.
  • Unsalted butter. I always make sure to use unsalted butter when baking because there is no “standard” for the amount of salt they can add to butter. So if you add salt to a recipe and then use salted butter you could end up with a very salty end product.
  • Brown sugar. Brown sugar adds a chewy texture to the finished product.
  • Vanilla. Vanilla is a must in baked goods just like salt. Real vanilla adds a better flavor than imitation vanilla.
  • Egg. It will be easier to incorporate the eggs into the batter if they are room temperature.
  • Oreos. Try not to eat them before they make it into the batter!
Ingredients for cookies and cream skillet cookie

Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees (F). If you’re using a cast-iron skillet you shouldn’t need to do anything to make it non-stick (The one I used was given to me by my grandma, but this one is the same size and the same brand as the other cast-irons I cook with.) If you don’t have a cast-iron skillet you can just use a small baking dish for the same effect. Either one needs to be 5 or 6 inches and you will need to spray a baking dish with non-stick spray.

Step 2: In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt until free of lumps.

Step 3: In another medium bowl beat the softened butter, sugar, and vanilla until soft and creamy. Add egg and beat well.

Step 6: Place the skillet in the oven with a cookie sheet underneath it to catch any that might spill over.

Step 7: Bake for about 25-30 minutes for a doughy center, 5-10 minutes longer if you would like your cookie to be more done in the center.

Step 9: Remove the Cookies and Cream Skillet Cookie from the oven and serve immediately. Top with ice cream if desired.

  • Skillet cookies are best served warm, about 5-10 minutes out of the oven.
  • You can make the dough ahead of time and bake off when ready to serve.
  • You can serve the skillet cookie with spoons and allow people to share or cut the cookie into slices, like a pizza.
