Skillet Baked Chocolate Cookie

Homemade Cookie Cake
I love chocolate and I love chocolate chip cookies. I like to make regular cookies, but I don’t always have the time it takes to make a whole batch of cookies. So, I like the idea of a bar or pan style cookie to save time.

I have tried several recipes over the years to make a bar or round pan cookie. I have tried it by just using my regular cookie dough and by using skillet cookie recipes. They have been good, but never great. The texture was just not quite what I thought it should be.

I recently found a used Martha Stewart cookbook. I was thrilled to find it since I love cookbooks. It was Martha Stewart Living Annual Recipes for 2003. It has a lot of great recipes in it. Many of the recipes are for things that I would not make but a lot of the recipes are for simple everyday type food.

One of the recipes that caught my attention was a recipe for Skillet Baked Chocolate Cookie. It looked so good!

I thought it might be the type of bar cookie that I had been looking for. The proportions of flour to butter to sugar were different than others I had tried. Leave it to Martha and her team of cooks to come up with a recipe with the correct proportions. Last weekend I decided to give this recipe a try and we loved it!

This recipe is so good. It is the perfect combination of crunchiness on the outside and soft and chewy center. This is so good served with vanilla ice cream.

You can serve this as is or easily decorate it for a fun cookie cake. I have made this many times over the years and we love it. If I am serving a large group I make several of them and everyone enjoys them.

    Does that ever look good! Mmmm! Thanks for sharing the recipe.


  2. I am unplugging my computer and heading to the kitchen NOW! Thanks!

  3. Lisa@BlessedwithGrace says:

    Lynn, YUMMY! I can’t wait to make this. I am very excited about this recipe. Thanks for sharing, as always!

  4. Lynn, I made this tonight. It really is wonderful. I made it with all milk chocolate chips though.

    Is there something special about using the skillet, or could I use any stainless cookware?

  5. Faith, I do not think there is anything special about the pan. I think anything like it would work.I am glad you like it.

  6. I’ve made cookie cakes before using an aluminum pizza pan, it worked great.

  7. I made this for my son’s birthday and we gobbled it up. It made so much … leftovers for a few days. Yum! I did end up cooking it closer to 40 minutes and it probably could’ve used a few more minutes, but I was hungry. lol
