Easy Skillet Cookie | chefsavvy.com

My first attempt at a skillet cookie was such a success that I had to try it with a peanut butter and chocolate combo. This Peanut Butter Chocolate Skillet Cookie couldn’t be easier. All you need is 30 minutes and 1 bowl. No mixer needed!

It’s much easier to make a large skillet cookie versus regular cookies because there is no rolling and multiple batches required. Just plop the dough in the pan (no need to grease either) and bake!

The BEST part of this cookie is the gooey layer of chocolate in the middle! Melting the butter makes the cookie soft and chewy. Brown sugar is also added for extra chewiness and flavor.

How to make a Peanut Butter Chocolate Skillet Cookie

  • Preheat oven: To 375 degrees F.
  • Make Batter: Add butter to a large bowl and microwave until melted (about 30-40 seconds). Stir in both sugars, peanut butter, vanilla and eggs to the melted butter. Fold in the flour, salt, baking soda and cornstarch just until combined. Do not over mix. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Spread 1/2 of the batter: Into a cast iron skillet in an even layer making sure to cover the bottom. No need to grease the pan. (Cast iron pans should already be seasoned.) I used a 12 inch skillet. 8-12 inch skillets would work for this recipe.
  • Spread the hazelnut spread: On top of the cookie layer. (This can be hard to do, don’t worry if a little mixes with the cookie)
  • Add the rest of the cookie batter on top of the hazelnut spread and smooth it out to cover the hazelnut spread.
  • Bake: for 25 minutes or until golden brown. It may look a bit giggly still but I like to under bake mine a bit. It continues to cook as it cools. If you prefer bake for 5 additional minutes.
  • Cool: For 20-30 minutes before serving.
  • Serve: Cut into slices and serve warm with ice cream if desired!
