The BEST Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie recipe! This ooey gooey, warm & melty skillet cookie (AKA: Pizookie) is completely irresistible. It's like eating warm cookie dough topped with vanilla ice cream, better than any restaurant version you've ever had! Plus it's easy to make & comes together in 20 minutes flat!
Lightly grease a 10” cast iron skillet. Set aside.
Cream together butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or in a large mixing bowl with a hand-held mixer.
Add egg, milk and vanilla and beat until combined.
Add flour, sea salt, baking soda and baking powder. Beat, starting on low speed and increasing to high as the dry ingredients get incorporated. Beat until a slightly sticky dough forms.
Add chocolate chips and stir in by hand.
Pour batter into the prepared cast iron skillet.
Use a greased spatula to evenly spread out the cookie dough in the skillet.
Sprinkle a handful of extra chocolate chips on top (if desired).
Bake for 15 minutes, or until the sides are just browning/set and the middle is still slightly jiggly. Please do NOT overbake. Remember the skillet cookie will continue to bake after it is removed from the oven.
Let cool 5-10 minutes.
Serve warm with ice cream and a drizzle of chocolate sauce!
Pizookie Ingredients & Substitutions
Salted Butter. Unsalted butter works well, you might just need to increase the amount of salt.
Granulated Sugar. Any granulated sugar works well in this recipe. I usually use organic cane sugar.
Brown sugar. I recommend using light brown sugar!
Flour. Use an unbleached, all-purpose flour. All-purpose gluten-free flour also works great for a gluten-free option.
Sea Salt. I exclusively bake and cook with pure sea salt, so if you use salt other than sea salt (like iodized table salt), you may need to decrease the amount.
Chocolate Chips. You can use chocolate chunks, chopped chocolate, or chocolate chips. It doesn’t matter what you use, as long as you use 1 cup. Let your imagination run wild and add some chopped candy (peanut butter cups, M&Ms, etc.) or flavored chocolate bars.
Milk. I use 2% milk, but any variety works well. Remember the higher the fat content, the richer the outcome.
