We’re definitely dessert people in our house.  Before going to bed, we always have some type of sweet treat.  Bad habit?  Perhaps.  But I can’t think of a better way to end each day.  This Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie couldn’t be easier.  I always have the ingredients on hand and it’s definitely requires less hands on time than making a traditional batch of cookies.

A deep dish wedge of chocolate goodness that’s taken just a bit more over the top by adding a scoop of melty ice cream on top.

Rich and decadent and absolutely amazing.


Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie
  • ¾ cup butter
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1-½ teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2-1/4 cups flour
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a 10" iron skillet, melt butter over medium-low heat. Stir in sugars and vanilla and remove from heat. Let cool for 5 minutes.
  3. Stir eggs into butter and sugar mixture. Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt until combined. Stir in chocolate chunks.
  4. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until beginning to brown, but still soft in the center.
  5. Served topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.


I’ve yet to meet someone who doesn’t enjoy this dessert.  Easy enough to prepare on a weeknight, yet special enough for any occasion.  Go raid your pantry and get this recipe into your oven pronto!

    Is there a chance you have vanilla extract in the deep dish cookie recipe twice?

      Hi, Lisa –

      YES! It’s a duplicate – I’ll let Laura know so she can remove it. 🙂 Thanks for catching that!

      • Alexa says

        Is the sugar duplicate too? Or is it white sugar and brown sugar?:)

        • Laura says

          Yes white and brown 🙂

    I don’t have a skillet. Any chance I could use a baking dish??

      Hey, Meg!

      You might be able to try something similar in size. You’ll just have to create the dough in a different bowl and then add to the prepared pan. Should work though!

      Let me know if you have any specific questions along the way!
