Ingredients in a Skillet Cookie
- Butter: melted works best for this recipe
- Sugar: we’ll use both granulated and brown sugar
- Egg: just the yolk from a large egg
- Vanilla extract: to compliment the chocolate flavor
- Baking soda: for leavening
- Salt: just a pinch to balance the sweetness
- Flour: I like to sift my flour so my skillet cookie comes out fluffier
- Chocolate chips: mini chips are perfect for this recipe but feel free to use any candy you like
How to make a Pizookie Recipe
- Prepare: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray nonstick cooking spray on your mini cast iron skillet.
- Mix: Melt the butter in a large bowl then stir in both sugars, egg yolk, vanilla extract, baking soda and salt. Carefully add in the flour then mix in the chocolate chips.
- Bake: the mini cast iron skillet for about 18-24 minutes, or until the edges are puffed and the center no longer looks translucent.
- Serve: warm, with lots of whipped cream or ice cream and sprinkles.
The cookie will fall slightly after baking, as it cools. This is normal. The more underbaked you make it the more it will fall (which is totally fine by me, we love this a bit underbaked and gooey).
If you don’t have a skillet, you can use a 6” cake pan, and 8×4” loaf pan, or make individual cookies in a muffin pan.
Yes, you can! Just refrigerate the dough in a bowl and cover the top with a plastic wrap. Or store in an airtight container.

Homemade Pizookie Recipe
- ¼ cup (57g) butter , melted
- 8 teaspoons (38g) granulated sugar
- ¼ cup (50g) packed brown sugar
- 1 large egg yolk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- ⅛ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup (62g) all purpose flour
- ⅓ cup (56g) mini chocolate chips or other chocolate chips or candy
- Preheat oven to 350°F. You will need a 6.25” mini cast iron skillet to make this cookie as shown. If you don’t have a skillet, you can use a 6” cake pan, and 8×4” loaf pan, or make individual cookies in a muffin pan. If you are using a skillet, cake, or loaf pan, spray it with nonstick cooking spray. If you’re using a muffin pan, use liners for easy removal and serving (it will probably make about 4 muffin sized cookies).
- Melt butter in a large bowl. Stir in both sugars, then egg yolk, extract, baking soda and salt. Carefully stir in the flour then mix in the chocolate chips.
- Optional: add 1/3 cup of ANY kind of chips or candy instead of the mini chips called for, if you wish.
- Bake the mini cast iron skillet for about 18-24 minutes, or until the edges are puffed and the center no longer looks translucent. Using another pan will affect baking time.
- Serve warm, with lots of whipped cream or ice cream and sprinkles.

Best skillet cookie recipe I have found!! I suck at baking and this turned out amazing!
these are the best …
Is it 1/4 cup of melted butter or 1/2 cup?
Hi, can I put dough in the fridge prior to baking? If so, does that change the baking time?
Yes you can and it shouldn’t, maybe just a few minutes longer.
Any idea if I could put all the dry ingredients in a mason jar for gift giving? Does the sequence of adding melted butter and egg yolk make a difference?
It doesn’t matter, not really – so yes this would be a great gift with a little cast iron pan even!
Hi! I’m thinking of making this in a 6inch cake pan. Could I pls know how much the height of the pan should be? I don’t want it to overflow
At least 1-inch high is fine, the skillet I’m using in the photos is only about 5-6 inches around.
Absolutely love hearing from
