Looking down on a reese's skillet cookie with two spoon in it

I love a simple recipe that doesn’t skimp on the flavor. This Reese’s Cookie Skillet is one of those recipes. You can have it in the oven in less than 10 minutes and be munching on it in 30 minutes!

It’s the kind of dessert you will want to make over and over again. The kind of dessert that will make your friends will ask you for the recipe. It is all kind of delicious!

  • 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.
  • The high Reese’s to cookie ratio. I made sure to include PLENTY of crushed Reese’s 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 sweetness 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.
  • Reese’s. Try not to eat them before they make it into the batter!
All of the ingredients needed for a reese's 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 melted butter, sugar, and vanilla until soft and creamy. Add egg and beat well.

STEP 4: Add flour mixture in two additions, mixing until just combined after each. Fold in the crushed Reese’s.

STEP 5: Press the dough into the prepared skillet. Top with extra Reese’s, if you’d like

STEP 6: Place the skillet in the oven. Place 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 Reese’s Cookie Skillet 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 it 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.
