Giant Chocolate Filled Cookie


I made this delicious cookie for my husband. Ok, so maybe I ate just as much as he did. I decided to try a giant chocolate filled cookie in my cast iron skillet. I wanted to make it taste different from the regular chocolate chip cookies that I usually make so I used milk chocolate chips instead of my normal semi-sweet chocolate chips.

It was so good! Now don’t get me wrong we LOVE chocolate chip cookies the regular way, however, this was a chocolate layer in the middle of the cookie instead of chocolate chips. I think the best part was making it in a cast iron pan. It came out golden brown and perfectly cooked through. I love cast iron!

Press half of the cookie dough into the

pan then pour on milk chocolate chips

keeping them 1/2″ from the edge.



Place the last of the cookie dough on top.



Bake at 325 for 30-35 minutes.



Let cool then slice like a pie.


Giant Chocolate Filled Cookie



  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1-1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2-1/4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1-1/2 cup mini milk chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl cream butter.
  3. Add sugars creaming until combined.
  4. Add vanilla and eggs combining until light and fluffy.
  5. In a small bowl combine baking soda, salt and flour. Add to cookie mixture stirring until combined.
  6. Place about 1/2 of the cookie dough into an ungreased 10″ round cast iron skillet. Press dough evenly on the bottom and up the side about 1/2″.
  7. Pour chocolate chips onto the dough keeping them about 1/2″ from the edge.
  8. Drop the remaining dough by spoonful’s on top. Using  buttered hands or a spatula, press the dough over the chocolate chips the best you can. Don’t worry if the chocolate chips show.
  9. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Check at 30 minutes and remove when the entire cookie is golden brown. My oven cooked the cookie in 33 minutes.
  10. Let cool a few minutes and run a spatula around the edge of the pan. Carefully slide giant cookie onto a cooling rack. Let cool and slice into pie like pieces.
