Honestly, I shouldn’t even write a blog post about this one. I mean, look at the picture. It speaks for itself. A Stuffed Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie. It’s almost too much. Almost. I came back from the grocery store after buying all of the ingredients I needed and my husband was helping me unload the groceries. He pulled out three bags of chocolate chips and looked at me like I was crazy. I just shrugged and went on my happy way knowing I had the best chocolate chip cookie in the works!
This might be the easiest chocolate chip cookie recipe ever. You mix all the ingredients together, no chilling required, and stuff it all into a cast-iron skillet. You don’t have to roll out individual cookies. This skillet cookie is basically magic and the fact that there are extra chocolate chips in the center is genius. You’ll have to forgive me for tooting my own horn on this one!
What ingredients do I need for this skillet cookie?
- All-purpose flour
- Baking Soda
- Unsalted butter
- Brown sugar
- Vanilla extract
- Chocolate Chips
Ready to get started?
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 6.5 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 4: Add flour mixture in two additions, mixing until just combined after each. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Step 5: Press half of the dough into the bottom of the skillet, pressing more in the center to make a divot, fill it with the extra chocolate chips. Use the rest of the dough to cover the top.
Step 6: Place the skillet cookie in the oven with a cookie sheet underneath it to catch any that might spill over.
Step 7: Bake for about 30-35 minutes for a doughy center, 5-10 minutes longer if you would like your cookie to be more done in the center.
