Giant Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie

Jump to Recipe

This dessert is my boy’s dream come true. They love chocolate chip cookies, and a giant cookie is a million time better! It’s about the same recipe I normally use, kind of. There are a few modifications you make.

Start with melted butter and sugars. Blend well.

Add in egg and vanilla.

I’m not sure where the photo went with the flour, baking soda and salt?? Just imagine it’s there. Only mix to combine the flour. Last is the chocolate chips. If your family is like mine, don’t be stingy. They love that chocolate.

Press into sprayed skillet.

Bake until golden brown. Allow to cool as long as you can stand it. If you let it cool pretty well, it is easy to slice and remove from pan. If you want to dive right in, that’s good too. Just scoop instead of cutting. These can be served as is or even with ice cream, whip cream, berries, ganache etc. You get it, right? They can be a base for other things too!

Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it!

  • 1 cup all purpose flour

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4-1 cup chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
    Prep skillet by buttering. You can use a 10 inch, or even 2- 6inch.
    In small bowl mix flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
    In larger bowl, combine butter and sugars. Mix well. Add is egg and vanilla, mix again. To this add the dry ingredients. Mix only until combined. Last are the chocolate chips. Combine.
