Looking down on a pumpkin chocolate chip skillet cookie

I think skillet cookies may have taken the cake (or the cookie lol) for my favorite dessert. My favorite things about them are:

  • They are so easy to throw together. Skillet cookies take so little effort with such a great payoff- a delicious, warm cookie!
  • Skillet Cookies are versatile. I have made several different varieties, but this Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie is my new favorite for fall!
  • 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 is going to give our skillet cookie a nice rise.
  • Salt. Salt is a must in baked goods. It will help to balance out the sweet and improve the overall flavor.
  • Pumpkin spice. I prefer homemade pumpkin spice, but store bought works great too!
  • 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. This will give our skillet cookie a softer texture than if we used white sugar.
  • Vanilla Extract. Vanilla is a must in baked goods just like salt. Real vanilla adds a better flavor than imitation vanilla.
  • Pumpkin puree. Be sure you’re using pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling.
  • Egg.  It will be easier to incorporate the eggs into the batter if they are room temperature.
  • Chocolate chips or chopped chocolate. I prefer chopped chocolate because you get those nice puddles of melted chocolate, but chocolate chips work great too!
All of the ingredients needed for this recipe

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 5-6 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, salt, and pumpkin spice until free of lumps.

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

Step 4: Add flour mixture in two additions, mixing until just combined after each. Fold in the chocolate chips or chopped chocolate.

Step 5: Press the dough into the prepared baking dish. Top with extra chocolate chunks, if desired.

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.
