Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
This giant chocolate chip cookie is the perfect combination of soft & sweetness.
Save the time of having to wait on multiple batches of cookies to come out of the oven. Set the timer and relax with a cup of afternoon tea.
Since discovering how to bake in my cast iron (it all started with cornbread), I am constantly searching for new ways of doing so.
This giant cookie is a family favorite and may even replace regular cookie baking around here. Because it’s incredibly simple and it’s super delicious.
It’s a perfect occasional treat around here.

A Few Tips:
- If your cast iron skillet is well seasoned, you shouldn’t need to grease it. However I still use a little bit of coconut oil spray. Just in case.
- When adding the cookie dough to the cast iron skillet, try to roll it out as evenly as you can.
- I used a 10″ cast iron skillet, but you can use a larger or smaller one if that’s all you have. Just be sure to adjust the baking time.
- Be sure to let the cookie cool before cutting to prevent it from breaking apart.
