Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

Wednesday, December 9, 2015

All of the goodness of a classic chocolate chip cookie but made in a mini iron skillet. The perfect sweet treat for two to share from Walking on Sunshine Recipes.

Have you ever gone shopping and found something
that just inspired you to bake?

The other day my husband and I went to Walmart to do
 some Christmas shopping.  I found this adorable little black
iron skillet in their Christmas section and it got me thinking about what I could bake.
It was only $5.00 so I purchased it with no intentions of giving it 
as a gift but to make cookies... a chocolate chip skillet cookie to share with my hubby
as a treat after dinner that night.    

I made a full recipe of chocolate chip cookies but only used enough dough for this skillet. 
 The skillet itself only held just under one cup of raw dough.  Depending on the size of the skillet you purchase, you'll use a different amount of raw dough.  Just be careful to not overfill the skillet.

Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie


2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter; softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 large eggs
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips.  

Depending on the size of your skillet, press the dough into the skillet that's been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. 

Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven until the edges are crisp and the cookie is golden and cooked through. Remove from oven. 

The perfect sweet treat for two to share...

Feel free to serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or some whipped cream. 

I know you're dying to ask...
what did I do with the leftover cookie dough?
