This skillet cookie is my go-to dessert for any occasion. Whether it’s a treat for my family or a get-together with girlfriends, this gooey, chocolate-y skillet cookie is always a hit.
Well today is the first day of school for two of my boys. Which means, summer vacation is officially over. For one last “hurrah” I baked a skillet cookie last night, which we all promptly ate with ice cream on top. This “cookie pie” as my boys have affectionately dubbed it, has been made many times in this house. And in the words of Mitch, my husband, “never gets old.” It’s true. It’s probably our favorite dessert. And it’s the easiest thing to make, too. It’s almost not blog-worthy because it’s so easy. But then again, it’s TOTALLY blog-worthy because it’s so dang good.
There’s nothing fancy in here; just good, quality ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. I used a dark chocolate chip this time. Don’t know about you, but the older I get, the darker I like my chocolate. And in something like this cookie, it’s amazing. Warm and gooey…that chocolate is so flavorful and irresistible.
I also used Golden Barrel organic light brown sugar, which is fresh and delicious. When I open the bag of brown sugar, I always take a deep breath in to smell that wonderful molasses. Ahh…it’s glorious. Fresh ingredients make a big difference in the outcome of your desserts.
I love making this because it’s literally the easiest dessert to whip up. It takes all of 25 minutes from start to finish, and it bakes in a skillet, which is rustic and fun in and of itself but also simple. Just mix the ingredients like you would any cookie recipe, but instead of scooping out each individual cookie, throw it all in the skillet and you’re done. Plus, the skillet holds in heat, making this the perfect dessert to eat warm. Seriously, take my word for it…you NEED this skillet chocolate chip cookie pie in your life.
Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, and you’re all set: dessert perfection awaits you. Try it today!
