Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie

  • Author: Erin Clarkson
  • Yield: Makes approx. 9 mini skillets, 3 6.5 inch skillets, or one 10 inch skillet cookie


Homemade Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie is super easy to make and can be made as one large skillet cookie or as mini skillet cookies.


  • 113g unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 50g Raw sugar (feel free to sub white sugar if you don't have any)
  • 150g brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¾ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp fine sea salt (I like kosher) 
  • 250g all purpose flour
  • 280g Dark chocolate, either in chunks or cut into rough chunks with a serrated knife
  • Flaky sea salt, such as Maldon, to finish. 


  1. Preheat the oven to 360f/185c. Spray skillets lightly with cooking spray, or grease with butter. 
  2. In a large bowl using an electric beater, or the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with either the blade attachment or the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugars together until pale and fluffy, approximately 4-5 minutes.  Beat in egg, vanilla and salt. 
  3. With the mixer on low, slowly add the flour and baking soda. Mix until just combined. 
  4. Either stir in the chocolate using a spatula, or add to the stand mixer and mix briefly until evenly incorporated. 
  5. Press the dough into the skillets. If you are using mini skillets they take about 4 tbsp each, If you are using a 6.5 inch skillet, divide the dough in three, and if you are using a large skillet, press all of the dough into it.
  6. Bake in the oven until lightly golden brown on top, or they are your desired level of doneness. Baking times are as follows, for a fairly soft textured cookie: Mini Skillets: 12-14 minutes, Medium Skillets (I use a 6.5 inch): 16-17 Minutes, Larger Skillet - 25-30 minutes. 
  7. Carefully remove from oven, allow to cool slightly, and serve warm with a scoop of ice cream, and your choice of sauce! (Melted chocolate works super well, or salted caramel would be AMAZING!)
