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.

  1. 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.
  2. When adding the cookie dough to the cast iron skillet, try to roll it out as evenly as you can.
  3. 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.
  4. Be sure to let the cookie cool before cutting to prevent it from breaking apart.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare your cast iron. If it is well seasoned, you shouldn’t need to grease it. However, I still use a little bit of coconut oil spray. Just in case.
  2. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl, set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter, vanilla and sugar using a mixer on medium speed until combined, light and creamy.
  4. Add the egg and mix on medium speed until well combined.
  5. Slowly add in the dry ingredients a little at a time and combine well with the mixer.
  6. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  7. Add the cookie dough to your 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.
  8. Bake for about 35-45 minutes. Or until your cookie is golden brown and center is baked through.
  9. Allow to cool before cutting. Enjoy!
