Pizookie (cookie in a skillet)


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • sea salt flakes optional


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine butter and sugars in the bowl of a stand mixer.  If butter is coming straight from the fridge, microwave for 15 seconds on high to soften.  Mix for 3-4 minutes, scraping sides of bowl, as needed.  Add eggs and vanilla and mix another 1-2 minutes, until light and fluffy.
  • Add flour, soda, cream of tartar and salt.  Mix until combined.  Add chocolate chips and mix on low until evenly distributed.
  • Spread dough into a 10” cast iron skillet.  Sprinkle with sea salt (if desired).  Bake for 22-24 minutes until golden brown on the edges.
  • Let cool for about 10 minutes, then top with vanilla ice cream and eat right out of the skillet.


* If you don’t have a skillet, you can make a pizookie in an 8-9” round pan or pie pan.  It won’t be as crusty around the edges, but will still be delicious!
