Easy Chocolate Chip Walnut Skillet Cookie

posted by on 09/20/2013 | 131 comments (leave one of your own)

When I was little, my mom would make homemade cinnamon rolls while we were at school. We would walk in the front door and the house would smell amazing.

My kids are deprived, man. I can barely make dinner. They will never walk in the door from school to homemade cinnamon rolls unless my mother is in my kitchen making them. Ain’t nobody (me) got time for that.

Yesterday as I was thumbing through my new October Martha Stewart Living, there was an insert that featured a gigantic skillet cookie. I might not have the time for cinnamon rolls, but by god I can throw ingredients in a bowl and dump it into a skillet. And bonus: I had all the ingredients.

Trust me when I tell you this looks nothing like the one pictured in the insert because I was on the phone and I didn’t read the directions, I simply went down the ingredient list and put everything into a bowl. The one in the magazine looks much more professional, but I guarantee you mine was just as delicious.


Chocolate Chip Walnut Skillet Cookie

6 tablespoon unsalted butter, room temperature
1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine butter and sugars with a wooden spoon. Stir in egg and vanilla. Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir in chips. Transfer to your cast iron skillet and smooth top. (I used an 8 inch skillet)

2. Bake until cookie is golden brown around edges and is set in center, about 18-20 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes or just scarf it down straight out of the oven and risk burning your mouth off.


I ate some before my kids got home from school, but they still were pretty stoked to walk into the house and find a gigantic cookie. MEMORIES.
