I’ve made chocolate chip cookies into bars, flourless blondies, bakery style batches, and even microwaved them in a mug. However, I’ve never baked them this BIG. And since we’re in Texas, of course, everything is just a little bigger. So, you know I need to represent.

I have cooked a lot of savory scrumptiousness in this pan, but this is the first time I’ve ever skillet-baked a sweet! And it turned out amazingly good. And soft. And gooey. Oh, the gooiness.

I apologize in advance to your New Year resolutions.

Using a batch of my best-ever chocolate chip cookie dough, this golden brown skillet cookie couldn’t have been simpler. I just greased my pan well, spread out the dough (pinching off a bit for taste-testing, naturally), and slid it into a hot oven. Just 30 minutes later, it was ready for devouring with a dollop of vanilla ice cream and my cookie-lovin’ partner in crime.

This skillet cookie is outrageously good (and did I mention soft and gooey?), and since it requires no cookie scooping, super quick to assemble! For a fun weekend project, potluck parties, girls’ night in or any occasion, you’re going to love this chocolate chip cookie in a pan.

We sure did!

    What would the adjustments would be necessary to make this recipe at al
    elevation of 5280?

  17. Sorry, I’m not familiar enough with high elevation baking to make recommendations for different baking times.

  18. I love making this! But how do I get it to look as smooth as it appears in the picture???

  19. I pressed the batter evenly all over the pan, which I suppose is how it looks so smooth!

  20. i give it a try today and all my family loved it ! big thanks to you
    but i wonder if it suppose to fall down from the middle when its out of the often ?
    and really really gooey inside ?
    because i felt it wasn’t perfectly cooked Although it’s got brown very well !
    what do you think ?

  21. You can certainly keep baking the cookie covered with foil if it seems underdone or too gooey. I would recommend baking for 5 more minutes at a time, covered, until it reaches your desired doneness.

  22. I made this tonight for the first time. I followed your recipe exactly as you listed it. My hubby and I totally SUPER DUPER LOVED IT!!! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe with the universe!! :o)

  23. i want to make this, but i do not have cornstarch.. is there anything i can substitute??

  24. I would recommend getting cornstarch, if you can. I have only ever made the recipe as written, so cannot advise on substitutes.
