Recipe: Easy Skillet Cookie

skillet cookie

Have you ever ordered a skillet dessert at a restaurant? What makes them so fantastic is that the dessert, like a chocolate chip cookie, is served in a warm skillet, straight from the stove, with ice cream on top. When you break your spoon into the cookie, the ice cream melts perfectly into the chocolaty goodness.

You can make this at home anytime you want. The best thing about this skillet cookie recipe is that it uses only one piece of cookware–all you need is a skillet!


2 sticks (1/2 cup) butter
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cup flour
1 cup rolled oats, either whole or coarsely ground in a food processor
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 10-ounce bag chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a 12-inch cast-iron skillet, melt two sticks of butter. Once melted, turn off the heat and add in both sugars. Whisk until smooth. Remove the skillet from the heat and let cool for a few minutes.
Once the sugar mixture is cool to the touch, whisk in the eggs.
Using a rubber spatula, carefully fold in the flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, salt and chocolate chips.
Cook for 25-35 minutes or until slightly brown on top.
Remove from oven and serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
