How to make a Chocolate Chip Cookie in a mini cast iron skillet:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Beat the butter, egg yolk, milk, brown sugar, granulated sugar and vanilla together in a mixing bowl until creamy.

Butter, vanilla, egg, milk and sugars beaten together in a glass bowl.

Add the flour, baking soda and salt. Mix together just until combined.

Stir in the chocolate chips.

Chocolate chips stirred into the cookie mixture with a wooden spoon.

Spread the mixture into a 6.75-inch cast iron skillet.

Bake for 18 to 20 minutes in the center of the oven until the edges are puffy and starting to crisp, and the center is still gooey and appears under baked.

I grated some chocolate over the top of the ice cream, but hot fudge, chocolate sauce or even caramel would be a delicious addition as well.

Recipe Notes & Tips

  • All ovens bake differently, cooking time are approximate.
  • There was no way to divide one egg in half, so I use one whole yolk with one tablespoon of milk for a close approximation.
  • Use high quality chocolate for the best results, it really does make a difference. I use Ghirardelli or Guittiard.
  • This recipe is the equivalent of 6 cookies.

Recipe Modifications

  • Use chocolate chunks instead of chips.
  • Substitute M&Ms for a festive cookie. (Valentine’s Day, Christmas, Easter colors)
  • Add .25 cup of toasted pecans or walnuts.
  • Substitute two 8-ounce ramekins for the mini skillet. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes.
