I bet you’ve wanted to see a new recipe and today I have a favorite in our household which is the skillet chocolate chip cookie! I first had this dessert at our favorite pizza joint and I wanted to create my own! Pretty much it’s a gooey chocolate chip cookie that’s topped off with vanilla ice cream (or your favorite flavor). So it’s pretty much crack in a skillet.

I swear this is one of the simplest things you can make! It’s great for a dinner party to impress your friends! To make this amazing skillet of pure joy and happiness you start by making the cookie dough. I used my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. It starts off with butter and sugar that you cream together, then you add eggs and vanilla. Next you sift the dry ingredients and add them slowly to the mixture, beat until combined, then add the chocolate chips. Press the dough into a greased cast iron skillet and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours or up to a few days. You bake the cookie at 350F for about 25 minutes or until the edges are set. You want it to be pretty gooey in the middle, that’s what makes this dessert so amazing!

See this recipe is super simple and it calls for simple household ingredients that everyone has. Just follow these simple steps and you’l have your friends wowed in no time!
