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)
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
- In a large bowl cream butter.
- Add sugars creaming until combined.
- Add vanilla and eggs combining until light and fluffy.
- In a small bowl combine baking soda, salt and flour.
- Add to the butter mixture stirring until combined.
- Place about 3/4 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″.
- Pour chocolate chips onto the dough keeping them about 1/2″ from the edge.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
Looks absolutely amazing! I made cookies myself a few days ago. You just can’t beat a good chocolate chip cookie 😁
Thank you! You are so right!!!
Wow ! This is really huge, looks absolutely delicious & tempting !!
Great to use for a birthday instead of cake too!
Oh, I’ve not thought of it, it is a wonderful idea.
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
Oh yes the pineapple upside down cakes are amazing in cast iron pans! Thank you so much Lex and Neek!
My guys are gonna love this! Yum!!!
LOL mine sure did! Thanks Rosemarie!
Looks too yummy
It definitely was! Thank you Mistimaan!
Yum! That makes me want to buy a cast iron skillet! (And yes, I know I should already have one, lol)
Hahahaha I don’t judge! Thanks Jacquie!
Your ratio of chocolate chip to dough is awesome! I love making single cookies in my small cast iron skillet, but a large one like this would be fun too!
I like how it’s a Chocolate layer in the middle of the cookie. The chocolate tends to melt altogether! Thanks!
Wow – that would be the perfect dessert right now! 🙂
Lol or any time! I love chocolate chip cookies…..obviously!
Wow! That is a dream! I need to make it 🙂
LOL it was amazing!
Who could resist this?
I know! It didn’t last long! Thanks!

This looks like heaven! So yummy🌞
Thank you Lisa!
Such a massive yumminess….nice idea… Love it❤
Thanks jyo it was fun to make!
LOL thanks Rini!
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.
Hahaha it will definitely impress them and there is plenty to share! Thanks Chris! I still want to make brownies in a cast iron pan too!
I like giant cookies that are freshly baked and hot. Chocolate Chip a plus!
Me too!! Thanks for checking out my recipes!
That is a cOOkie!
LOL and it was a delicious cOOkie!!!
