Who doesn't love chocolate chip cookies? Now imagine one giant chocolate chip cookie...yup, that's exactly what this recipe is. Chocolate Chip Cookie Skillet is a giant cookie baked in a cast iron skillet. It's crispy on the outside but still ooey gooey in the center.
I can't even count how many times I made this recipe before it turned out. By the end, I was swearing never to eat another chocolate chip cookie for the rest of my life. There were a few days in a row I was testing this recipe and by the last day, my husband was asking me to make it in a smaller cast iron pan so we weren't eating so much! What I'm trying to say is this recipe is PERFECT! I tested this recipe so many times, I think it is the absolute best!
A couple notes about Chocolate Chip Cookie Skillet:
Let's talk about ghee:
In this recipe I give you the option to use either melted ghee or coconut oil. Anytime I have the opportunity to use ghee in baked goods, I will. Ghee gives baked goods that buttery flavor without the dairy. With that being said, if you are lactose intolerant, ghee is not a good option. It is believed that during the clarifying process, all milk solids are removed from ghee, I personally would stick with coconut oil if you have a dairy issue just to be safe.
A few fun ways to jazz up this cookie skillet:
- Add dairy-free ice cream on top right before serving. I like vanilla with mine!
- Add a couple dollops of smooth almond butter on top before baking
- Drizzle with homemade caramel sauce from my Vegan Chocolate Cookies with Sea Salt recipe
- Sprinkle with coarse sea salt before baking for a salty-sweet treat
