  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ teaspoons baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 11 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened at room temperature (equiv to 1 stick plus 3 tablespoons)
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • cup light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ¼ cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup dark chocolate chunks
  • Vanilla ice cream for serving
  • Chocolate or caramel sauce for serving


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Make sure you have a 10 inch cast iron skillet. Do not grease it.
  • Dry ingredients: In a bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, and salt until evenly combined. Set aside.
  • Wet ingredients: Using a stand mixer or a handheld mixer, cream the butter with the granulated sugar and the brown sugar on high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 to 3 minutes. Beat in the egg. Add vanilla extract and mix for a few seconds until evenly combined.
  • On low speed, mix in the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients until evenly combined and a thick dough dough forms. Do not overmix. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the 1 ¼ cups of semisweet chocolate chips.
  • Spread dough evenly over the ungreased 10 inch cast iron skillet. Top with the ¼ cup of the dark chocolate chunks. Note: the dough should be about ¾ to 1 inch thick.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes in the middle rack, or until the edges and top are golden brown, and the center is set (it may be a little bit jiggly in the center, that’s fine as long as it's not too jiggly). It will puff up and then deflate a little. Note: if you use a 12 inch skillet, you may need to reduce the baking time by 3-5 minutes.
  • Let it cool for at least 20 minutes to allow the cookie to set. Serve with ice cream and drizzle with chocolate or caramel sauce. Enjoy!


  • Special equipment: 10 inch cast iron skillet, handheld or stand mixer.
  • Make ahead: The cookie dough can be made 1 day in advance and stored in the fridge. Let the dough sit on the counter at room temperature for 20-30 minutes before using so you can easily spread it over the skillet.
  • Let it cool: Let the cookie cool for 20 minutes or longer to allow the interior to set.
