For Cookie

  • 1 ⅛ cup (135 grams) all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick (113 grams) unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup (159 grams) brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup (170 grams) semisweet chocolate chips


For Cookie:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). Spray a 6.5-inch dish with non-stick spray and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • In another medium bowl, beat softened butter, sugar, and vanilla together until soft and creamy. Add egg and beat well.
  • Add flour mixture in two additions, mixing until just combined after each. Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Press the cookie dough into the skillet.
  • Place skillet into the preheated oven. Place a cookie sheet under it in case of any spillover.
  • Bake for about 30-35 minutes for a very soft center. Bake for 5-10 longer for a firmer cookie.


  • Add chunks of chocolate on top before baking. This will give you those incredible puddles of chocolate on top of the deep dish cookie.
  • Don't over mix. You need to mix your batter until all of the ingredients are JUST combined, otherwise, you will make too much gluten and your cookie will be tough instead of tender.
