Enjoy this crispy-soft, ooey-gooey, over-sized chocolate chip cookie straight out of the oven and with a scoop of vanilla ice cream! Baking it in a cast iron skillet gives it a perfectly crispy outer edge and a soft center. This “pizookie” is a cookie lover’s dream come true!
You may or may not know that I am a bit of a cookie fanatic. I think about cookies far too often, mostly because they are delicious but also because there are about nine million different ways to make them. I have logged hundreds of hours merely thinking about cookies, which is proof that the options are literally endless. Sometimes, though, simplest is best. The good ol’ chocolate chip cookie is the most loved cookie for a reason. This giant Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie (also called a Pizookie) is a cookie lover’s dream. The batter is ridiculously easy to make and you probably have all of the ingredients in your kitchen. Dump it into a cast iron skillet, bake for 20 minutes and you have yourself some serious cookie perfection. The outer edge gets nice and crispy while the center of the cookie stays soft and perfect.
Get your skillet out! Here’s how to make this Cookie!
What is a pizookie?
“Pizookie” is the combination of two delicious words: pizza and cookie! It has the ingredients of a cookie, but is shaped and cut like a pizza.
Do I have to use a cast iron skillet to make this cookie?
Feel free to use any oven-safe skillet, but a cast iron skillet will bake this giant cookie to absolute perfection. If you have cast iron, I recommend using it!
Should I chill the dough for this Pizookie before baking?
You can! But you don’t have to. I find that it is easier to spread it in the pan when the batter is not chilled, but the cookie will turn out great either way.
Can I replace the chocolate chips with something different?
Absolutely. As long as the extras equal approximately 2 cups, you can use chocolate or candies of your choice (or a combination). Any variety of chocolate chip, caramel bits, M&M’s candies and chopped candy bars will all taste DELICIOUS!
