Author: Lia Soneson

Makes one large 10” cookie

Close your eyes, imagine biting in to a warm, chocolate chip cookie. To make your dreams

come true, try this skillet chocolate chip cookie -- it delivers the perfect chewy, chocolate-y

experience that you need. This recipe's flavor is elevated with a few special add-ins -- a hint

of heat from cayenne pepper, just the right amount of dark chocolate chips, plenty of

crunchy walnuts, and to complete the experience - a sprinkle of flaked salt.


6 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

1 large egg

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 cup dark chocolate chips

1/2 cup walnuts, finely chopped

1/2 teaspoon coarse flake salt, for garnish


1. Preheat the oven to 350° F. In a large bowl, mix the butter, granulated sugar, and brown

sugar until evenly incorporated. Stir in the egg and the vanilla.

2. In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients, flour, baking soda, salt, and cayenne pepper

until evenly combined.

3. Add the dry ingredient mixture to the butter-sugar mixture. Fold in the chocolate chips

and walnuts. Transfer the cookie dough to a 10-inch cast-iron skillet and pat into place

forming an even layer.

4. Bake in a preheated oven until the cookie is golden brown and just set in the center (the

dough springs back to a light fingertip touch, 18 to 20 minutes. Let the cookie cool for 5

minutes and sprinkle with flake salt before serving. Serve warm wedges with vanilla ice
