Irresistible Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie with Vanilla Ice Cream

Dec 14, 2023 | Desserts


Prep Time

Cooking Time

15 minutes
20-25 minutes


  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Optional: ½ cup chopped walnuts or pecans for added crunch
  • Vanilla ice cream, for serving

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream the softened butter and both sugars until light and fluffy. This will take approximately 2-3 minutes.
  4. Beat in the vanilla extract and egg, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  5. Gradually add the flour mixture into the butter-sugar mixture, mixing until the ingredients are fully incorporated. Be careful not to overmix, as it can result in a denser cookie.
  6. Next, gently fold in the chocolate chips and, if desired, the chopped nuts.
  7. Now it’s time to bring in the skillet! Ensure your skillet is oven-safe and well-greased. Transfer the cookie dough into the skillet, spreading it out evenly.
  8. Bake the skillet cookie in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the edges are nicely caramelized and the center is slightly set.
  9. Remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes.
  10. To serve, scoop a generous portion of the warm skillet chocolate chip cookie onto a plate, and top it off with a scoop (or maybe two) of creamy vanilla ice cream.

Tips and Variations:

  • For an extra touch of decadence, drizzle some caramel or chocolate sauce over the skillet cookie before serving.
  • You can make this recipe even more special by adding a sprinkle of flaky sea salt on top just before baking.
  • Don’t have a skillet? No worries! You can use a round cake pan or a pie dish.
  • Feel free to get creative with your choice of chocolate. Swap semi-sweet for dark chocolate chunks or even white chocolate chips.
