A deep-dish skillet chocolate chip cookie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, caramel drizzle, and festive funfetti sprinkles. What’s not to like?
When the hubby and I went out for my birthday dinner we saw a couple of different restaurants served a deep-dish skillet cookie for dessert. I wanted to try it, but I didn’t want to order it because I knew I could easily make this at home!
Who wants to spend extra money for something you can make in your own kitchen? I know I definitely do not!
I didn’t remember to make it right away, but a couple days after the hubby was talking about a pizza place right around the corner serves a deep-dish skillet cookie as well. That just sealed the icing on the cake. Off to work I went.
I tried to make it a couple of different times, but the last time I succeeded. Making chocolate chip cookies are second nature, right? This deep-dish skillet cookie wasn’t so easy because my skillet was a big, deep-disk skillet. I took the recipe and doubled it because I have a 10-inch skillet.
The recipe calls for an 8 or 9 inch skillet – if you have a larger one, just double the recipe.
This deep-dish skillet chocolate chip cookie is the best because it is thick like a delicious piece of pie and chewy like a chocolate chip cookie. You can top it however you like – I thought vanilla ice cream, a generous drizzle of caramel sauce and festive sprinkles did the job!
- ½ cup 1 stick unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
- ½ cup light brown sugar
- ½ cup white granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 and ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup chocolate chips
- caramel sauce optional
- sprinkles optional
- vanilla ice cream optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8 or 9 inch cast iron skillet. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, light brown sugar, and white granulated sugar.
Add in the egg and vanilla extract while mixing on low.
Slowly add in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix thoroughly.
Add in cookie dough into the cast iron skillet and spread around with a plastic spatula. Make sure it is spread out even.
Add the chocolate chip on top and press them down a little bit.
Bake for 20-22 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
Allow the cookie to completely cool before slicing and garnishing with your favorite toppings.
Stores in an airtight container for one week.

I have a large skillet too....it's a shame I'll have to double the recipe. Who wants all that cookie laying around? Hahaha...ME! I'm sure my kids and I can handle twice the cookie dough 🙂
Kim - LOL! Enjoy! 🙂
These look delish. It reminds me of pazookie's at BJ's.
