  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs (1 egg and 1 egg yolk)
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract

Do you know what the most iconic dessert in the USA is? Chocolate chip cookies!

And while I love a good chocolate chip cookie, sometimes you just need to change it up a bit.

We need to give Lauren Allen a special shout out for her impeccable chocolate chip cookie skillet recipe. It tastes just like a cookie skillet that you'd order at a restaurant, but you can eat it at home, by yourself, in your pajamas! What could be better than that?

Let's get started. First, you'll need the following in order to make this killer chocolate chip cookie skillet recipe:

  • An oven
  • A microwave
  • A microwave safe bowl
  • An electric mixer
  • A cast iron skillet (or a regular, oven-safe skillet)
  • A spoon

Once you have all of that ready, it's time to get out your ingredients.

You'll need:

  • 1 ½ sticks unsalted butter
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs (1 egg and 1 egg yolk)
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups + 2 tbs. all purpose flour
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 ½ cups chocolate chips (we recommend half semi-sweet and half milk chocolate, but feel free to use your favorite combo!)

Ready? Here we go.

  1. Preheat your oven to 325° F.
  2. Melt butter in a microwave safe bowl for roughly 45 seconds. (You may want to place a piece of paper towel over the top in case the butter splatters - no one likes cleaning their microwave.) Once most of the butter is melted, set aside and let it cool.
  3. Measure both the granulated sugar and light brown sugar and add to your cooled(ish) melted butter. Beat with an electric mixer until well blended.
  4. Add in the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla and mix until combined. Be sure you don't over mix!
  5. Using a spoon, stir in the flour, baking soda, and salt until just combined. Then toss in your chocolate chips and mix them in gently.
  6. Press your cookie dough into a cast iron skillet.
  7. Bake for 28-35 minutes or until the cookie it just golden. Be sure you don't overbake it!
  8. Allow skillet to cool. Please note: the cookie will continue to cook while it's cooling.
  9. Serve as desired (cut into pieces, or just grab a spoon and dig in) and ENJOY!

You can make this recipe yours by modifying it to your liking.

Here are a few other ideas we thought of:

Top cooled cookie with a big scoop of ice cream (any flavor) and drizzle hot fudge. It's a classic combination that truly will never get old. You could also add caramel!

Place store-bought frosting in a piping bag (or you can use a Ziploc bag and cut the corner off) and squeeze frosting on top of cooled cookie. If you're feeling fancy or have a special occasion to celebrate, try writing something special across the cookie (like Happy Birthday, Congrats, Feel Better, or Just Because).

5 minutes before the cookie skillet is done baking, top with marshmallows and place back in oven. You may need to turn the broiler on for 30 seconds or so at the end so the marshmallows get nice and golden. 

Top with globs of peanut butter, extra chocolate chips, and chocolate sauce. 

Stir in your favorite nuts to the cookie dough when you're adding in the chocolate chips. Once baked and cooled, top with ice cream, whipped cream, and sprinkles.

And last but not least, add cocoa powder to the cookie dough, and big chunks of chocolate. Once cooled, top with ice cream.
