Try New Things: Chocolate Chip and M&M Cookie Pie in a Cast Iron Skillet

Last time I was at the library, I checked out The Lodge Cast Iron Cookbook. Upon flipping through it’s delicious laden pages, I spotted this giant cookie in-a-pan. It spoke to me.

So I picked up some Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Chips and Peanut Butter M&M’s and put my cast iron skillet to work.

I recommend waiting until it’s completely cooled before devouring. Pair it with a glass of milk for a perfectly satisfying dessert!

Giant Cookie-In-A-Pan
Recipe type: Dessert

  • 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • Assorted M&M’s or sprinkles

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat both sugars and the butter until smooth. Beat in the vanilla. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir well with a wooden spoon. The dough will be stiff. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  3. Spray a 10-inch cast iron skillet with cooking spray. Pat the cookie dough evenly into the skillet and decorate the surface with M&M’s or sprinkles. Bake until the edges are lightly browned, about 30 minutes.
  4. Remove the skillet from the oven and let cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Cut the cookie into 16 wedges and serve it directly from the skillet using a pie server.

    We love our cast iron! But I’ve yet to use the dutch oven, or any other cast iron in the oven. I have good intentions to fix that this fall.
    This giant cookie “speaks to me” too – I think the kids would love it if I tried it. :)
