The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Skillet Recipe

Cookie Skillet Recipe

Alrighty, multiple things to mention here: 1. I know, I know I use this pan for every. single. recipe. lately. But it seriously is the prettiest & the pink just makes me SO happy 😂 Plus I’m not kidding when I say food really does cook better in it. I don’t know what it is but something about this cast iron quality just makes food taste better. It got this crust to be perfectly crispy while super gooey on the inside, it made the sweet potatoes & kale be super crispy while the other ingredients sautéed perfectly in my breakfast skillet recipe, & it made my gluten-free brownie recipe turn out so chewy it was hard to put it down. Seriously, it’s so worth the money. 2. Make sure when you make this recipe that you have friends &/or family around. It took every ounce of my being not to eat this entire skillet in one sitting. I’m not kidding. And what I considered “conquering” of my will-power was eating this for dinner & breakfast the next day 🤦‍♀️ It’s seriously that good. 3. I highly recommend eating this cookie skillet with ice cream on top. Just trust me on this on. 4. I used Sunspire’s dairy-free semi-sweet chocolate chips for this recipe. I prefer these for this recipe for multiple reasons: they’re dairy-free (aka they wipe away a bit of my guilt for eating this lol), they taste just like, if not better, than regular chocolate chips, & they somehow manage to stay melty even when the rest of this skillet cools down leaving you with an always gooey chocolate chip cookie skillet. 5. Last but certainly not least I can’t even begin to tell you how easy this recipe is to make. No seriously, you just throw all the ingredient in one bowl, mix ’em, & toss them in the skillet. It takes maybe 5 minutes, if that, to make it which is why it’s become my go-to dessert for all occasions.

      Hi Sharon! Mine was 10 1/4in & worked great — I believe that’s a “standard” size so anything around there should work 🙂 Enjoy!!

        Hey. The Le Creuset website only has 12 1/4 inches in matte sugar pink. Please double check underneath your skillet, unless that’s the wrong colour I’m looking at. Happy Holidays!!

          Hi there! Just double checked the bottom of my skillet & the dimensions are correct 🙂 It must be sold out on their site in that size. Happy holidays! XO
