Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie .

  • Author: Amanda @ Running with Spoons
  • Total Time: 35 mins
  • Yield: 1 9 inch cookie 1x


  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk*
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a 9-inch cast iron skillet, melt butter over medium heat, stirring frequently until it begins to turn golden brown; about 3 minutes. Whisk in sugars and vanilla.
  3. Remove skillet from heat and allow to cool for about 5 minutes before adding in egg and egg yolk. Whisk gently until well combined. Add flour, baking soda, and salt, stirring until just incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips.
  4. Using a spatula, spread the dough until it is evenly distributed in the skillet. Bake for 18-20 minutes until edges begin to turn golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.


* The addition of the extra egg yolk results in a softer and cakier cookie. I made one without it and it still works, so you can omit it if you wish.
