Giant Chocolate Chip 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 Chip Cookie in my cast iron skillet. It was so good! Now don’t get me wrong, we LOVE chocolate chip cookies the regular way. But this came out golden brown and perfectly cooked through. I think the best part was making it in a cast iron pan. I love cooking in cast iron pans!

In a large bowl combine the butter, vanilla, sugar and brown sugar until creamy.


Add the eggs, mixing until light and fluffy.



In a small bowl, combine the flour, salt and baking soda.


Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture mixing until combined.



Press 3/4 of the cookie dough into the pan pressing

up the sides about 1/2″.

Place the chocolate chips on the dough but keep them about 1/2″ from the edge.



Drop the rest of the cookie dough by spoonful’s on

top and press it over the chocolate chips using butter hands.

Flatten out the cookie so it is all the same thickness.



Bake in a preheated 325 oven for 30-35 minutes.

Remove from the oven and let cool a few minutes. Run a spatula around the outside edge loosening the cookie. Carefully slide the spatula under the cookie and slide it onto a cooling rack. Once completely cool, slice into pie shaped pieces.

Giant Chocolate Chip 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 all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1-1/2 cups chocolate chips (I used mini milk chocolate but any will do)


  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.
  6. Add to the butter mixture stirring until combined.
  7. Place about 3/4 of the cookie dough into an ungreased 10″ round cast iron skillet.
  8. Press dough evenly on the bottom and up the side about 1/2″.
  9. Pour chocolate chips onto the dough keeping them about 1/2″ from the edge.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.

  1. Love your pizza cookie recipe and the cast iron skillet! I don’t have one but my mom does and she’s had it for years – I made an upside down pineapple cake in it once for a project in middle school. It’s one of the best and long lasting pan she’s had for years – Neek

  2. What a great idea. This will work perfectly in our Baby Q (small gas barbecue oven). We won’t have an inside oven in our new caravan, but we’ll use the baby Q outside for cooking things like quiche (in a small cast iron skillet). Now I’ll just have to try a giant choc chip cookie as well. That’s sure to impress the fellow campers.
