This was way to easy to put together. In 45 minutes which includes taking pictures are searching for the ice cream scoop this Sweet Sensation was ready to eat. Remember I told you that the Mr doesn’t care for sweets (wink-wink) but he had no trouble with this one. I tried to get him to take a spoonful from the skillet but he wouldn’t go that far. I sure did! Sweet Mother of Pearl this is fantastic and I am on the hunt for mini skillets. If any of you know where I can get some please shout me a holler. Finding a recipe like this was not hard to do. It almost came down to eenie meenie minie moe. Gimmesooven.com was the one. Don’t be surprised if you hear the cookie in a skillet calling you in the middle of the night. It’s that good.

Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Skillet – Adapted from Gimmesomeoven
10 TBS unsalted butter, softened divided
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla bean paste (extract will work just as well)
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 cup chocolate chips
(Vanilla ice cream and caramel topping optional)

Butter a black iron skillet with 2 TBS of the butter. If butter isn’t soft enough to spread until gone it can be melted and then set aside to cool. In a large bowl cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Then add egg and vanilla paste. Mix flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl. The add the dry ingredients to the wet just until combined and then add chips being careful not to overmix. Press cookie dough into prepared skillet and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until browned around the edges. Cookie should still be soft in the center. Serve with ice cream and caramel topping if desired.

You know you want some, go ahead don’t be scared!!!

  1. This sounds quite dangerous Sandra. Less than 45 minutes from nothing to something so delicious looking is my definition for dangerous.
    I picked up some really fun mini cast iron skillets (square) a while back at one of our favorite stores – Homegoods. I’ve seen them there fairly often and they’d be perfect for individual servings of this wonderful treat.

  2. Sandra…don’t worry about those mini skillets! I’ll eat this straight out of a big one! This looks fabulous and I love desserts that come together quickly! I found some colorful square enamel mini skillets at the thrift store. I’ll be sure to keep my eyes out for you!

  3. I think I’ve seen the mini iron skillets at Burlington, Old Time Pottery, and possibly Home Goods (?). Maybe not on the Home Goods. Maybe it was World Market, although they probably cost an arm and a leg there. I’m sure about the other 2, though, and it seems the ones at OTP were the most reasonably priced. It was last year when I saw them, but they should still be around since they’re a staple, don’t you think?

    A giant cookie…just what the doctor ordered!
