deep dish cast iron skillet cookie

Deep Dish Cast Iron Skillet Cookie

August 14, 2019 in Food, Recipe, Recipes - No Comments

My cast iron pieces have become the most (only) used cookware in my home. I use them every morning for breakfast, and then again for dinner if I need them. Over the weekend, I decided to try my hand at baking in them. Everyone does it, so it can’t be that hard right? Right! It actually saved me some dishes, not having to have several mixing bowls for wet and dry ingredients. Do y’all remember my Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe? I took that and adapted it to make this Deep Dish Cast Iron Skillet Cookie.

One of the first things that I think of when I hear skillet cookie, are those pizookies that you find in the mall, or at supermarkets. And, to be honest, I’ve never had one of those. I know, gasp. Though, I knew that I wanted it to be deeper than that, more like a cookie pie than a cookie pizza. Using my Lodge Cast Iron 3.2 Quart Skillet, I was able to achieve the deep dish skillet cookie that I was looking for here.

I know what you’re thinking–let’s get to the recipe.

Gather Your Ingredients

  • 1 C Butter
  • 1 C Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 C Granulated White Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 TSP Vanilla
  • 2 1/3 C Flour
  • 1 TSP Baking Soda
  • 1/2 TSP Salt
  • 1 C Chocolate Chips (You could even do 1/2 chips and 1/2 chunks)

Vanilla Ice Cream, for serving.
My first go-round at this, I added about 2 – 2 1/2 C Chocolate Chips, same as my cookie recipe. Do NOT do this. Lol. Don’t add any extra chocolate chips, unless you prefer a super and chocolatey fudgey cookie


  • Preheat oven to 350 Degrees
  • In your cast iron skillet (can be anywhere from 10-12 in– a deeper skillet works best), melt butter over medium heat stirring often! Burnt butter is gross and you’ll have to start over…so watch this carefully.
  • When it starts to bubble and is fully melted, turn your heat to low and add your sugars. Keep stirring until this mixture is glossy and free of lumps.
  • Put a kitchen towel down on the lowest shelf in your fridge, and place the skillet inside to cool for 20-25 minutes (this will keep the eggs from scrambling when you add them in the next step).
  • Remove from fridge and add your eggs and vanilla, stir well to combine.
  • Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • *Check to make sure that your dough is room temperature* Add in your chocolate chips and stir.
  • Bake at 350 for 26-30 Minutes or until the edges are a light golden brown. *The insides will still be a bit gooey, but that’s what you want, and it will set some once you remove it* It’s so easy to overbake this, so keep an eye on it. If your inside looks super gooey and the crust is already golden brown, place foil over top to keep crust from burning and bake for an additional 3-4 minutes.
  • Let your cookie rest for a few minutes, slice into it, and serve with vanilla ice cream!

Don’t worry, the leftovers are good too.

  • Garlic Parmesan Chicken Tenders over Cavatappi Pasta in Vodka Sauce—RECREATE THIS DECADENT MEAL IN LESS THAN 30 MINUTES! 
Y’all know that I love things that are quick, easy, and flavorful in the kitchen. And this one took less than 30 minutes start to finish! I dare say maybe even less than 20. 👀⠀
I’ve been making chicken (I’ve tried tender, breasts, and thighs) this way for about a week or two now and it’s so incredibly flavorful and juicy! ⠀
This meal looks and tastes super decadent, with very minimal effort. ⠀
The @weberseasonings Garlic Parmesan seasoning that I mention and use here is a new favorite, I’ve been putting it on everything—but of course you can change up the seasonings and even the sauces to cater to your family’s tastebuds. 
I bet this would be really good with some fettuccine and alfredo sauce; I may try that next!
Get you a Valentine who looks at you the way that Grayson looks at ice cream in the ➡️➡️s w i p e 😂😂😂
  • These didn’t photograph as well as I wanted, but they were insanely delicious. 
Baja Chicken and QUESO stuffed Bell Peppers. 🤤🤤 I cooked two chicken breasts in a little bit of chicken broth in the crockpot—seasoned with @goyafoods Adobo Seasoning, onion and garlic powder, chili powder, and pepper. High for 3/4 or low for 6. 
Then I began by caramelizing some onions in my pan, added a bit (a lot) of minced garlic and sautéed until fragrant. I added a can of tri bean blend (this was kidney, black, and pinto beans but you can use your fave) and a can of corn drained and rinsed into the pan. Seasoned all with onion and garlic powder, as well as salt and pepper. I added my shredded chicken and a jar of my favorite Queso to these. 
After cutting the tops off and cleaning the seeds out from inside my peppers, I spooned this mixture into each and sprinkled with cotija cheese. 
Bake them at 350 for 30-45 minutes or until the cheese on top is brown and bubbling. *You can boil your peppers prior to this so they’re soft and not super chewy. 
I served them over Mexican Rice (also from Goya). These will be on the blog soon. But I wanted to share it since it was super yummy. ■ ■

  • Perfect Saturday Family Lunch. 
We tried out @baddaddysburger for the first time today and it did *not* disappoint. Jacob got the Bad Ass Burger, which is a 10oz beef patty with buttermilk fried bacon on top. It comes with horseradish mayo, but he subbed for original. 
And I got the create your own (giant) salad—with chopped romaine, red onions, hard boiled eggs, black olives, grapes, shredded cheese, croutons and fried chicken tenders; with ranch on the side. Seriously delicious. 
Their fried pickles were noteworthy—coated in a seasoned batter and super tasty. Our server told us that the fried deviled eggs were really popular as well, so that’s on my to try list. 
We didn’t try their milkshakes or banana pudding today because we were just so full, but I can’t wait to go back.

  • My photo dump rambling of a weekend recap is live on the blog. I had so much fun with these ladies, and I swear I’ll stop talking about it eventually. 😂 
Shout outs to every single place we went that accommodated such a large group of loud women, all with cameras out. 
@noelle_nashville / @makeready_nashville provided us with THE most delicious dinner Friday night, where this photo was taken. (I think that I may take Jacob there for Valentine’s Day). 📸: @ellie_kayphotography

  • Wow. FIVE YEARS.⠀
While we’ve been together for much longer, marriage is so much different. And I definitely think that getting to the five year mark is a feat in itself. ⠀
Today on the blog—I’m sharing a few, five to be exact, of the lessons I’ve learned over the course of the last five years. (Click the Link in my Bio to read). ⠀
Being married to someone and in their space almost constantly, you learn a lot about a person...and I honestly feel like I picked one of the best. He’s my best friend and he is always in my corner. He supports me unconditionally, even if I’m not believing in myself. ⠀
Spoiler Alert: It isn’t always Sunshine and Rainbows, but Marriage isn’t supposed to suck. ⠀
If I could give one quick piece of advice it would be this: Marry someone who just gets you. Someone who sets your soul on fire. ⠀
I’ve said this many times, but I knew almost instantly that I was going to marry my husband. ⠀
What is the best piece of marriage/relationship advice you’ve ever received, and what is the worst? ⠀
