Top 10 Chewy Skillet Cookie Recipes

Skillet cookies are just as they sound – giant cookies made in a skillet.

You’ll see them a lot in restaurants, served in cast iron pans right out of the oven. And they’re thick, chewy, and impossible to resist.

But while chocolate chip reigns supreme, there are a ton of tasty skillet cookie recipes out there.

And I think we should try them all!

1. Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

Let’s begin with the OG skillet cookie that started it all. 

Each bite of this gooey pizookie is gooey and melty, with sweet chocolatey flavors that dance on your tongue.

Sprinkle some flakey sea salt over the top to contrast and enhance the sugary deliciousness. Then serve it with a scoop of ice cream.

If you like cookie bars served warm, this is the dessert for you.

2. Healthy Oatmeal Cookie Skillet

Full disclosure: “healthy” is a loose term here.

I mean, sure, it uses whole wheat flour, coconut sugar, and rolled oats. So it’s certainly healthier than some other cookie recipes on the list.

But make no mistake, it’s still chewy and deliciously chocolatey.

That said, there are raisins in the mix too, and coconut oil instead of butter.

So you’ll get protein and fiber, natural sweetness from the fruit, and it’s even free from refined sugars.

3. Red Velvet Cookie for Two

Some say “I love you” with jewelry. But I prefer to say it with food.

Specifically, sweet treats that’ll make you drool! And this chewy red velvet skillet cookie ticks all my boxes.

It has all the staples of a red velvet cake, including a chocolatey flavor, a deep red color, and sweet buttercream frosting. 

But the texture is 100% chewy cookie.

Serve this for Valentine’s Day or date night, and your honey will swoon.

4. M&M’s Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

M&Ms are some of my all-time favorite cookie additions.

Don’t get me wrong, I love chocolate chips. But I adore the added color and texture you get with these little candies.

So if you share this sentiment, you’ll have fun with this skillet cookie recipe.

Chewy, warm, and packed to the brim with melted M&Ms, it’s the kind of dessert you’ll dream about.

So grab a spoon and dig in!

5. Marshmallow Funfetti Skillet Cookie

If you’re on the hunt for something a touch less sweet, go ahead and scroll to the next recipe.

Because this marshmallow funfetti recipe is sugary to the max!

It’s chewy and loaded with classic sugar cookie flavors. But the marshmallows make it even more ooey-gooey and scrummy.

This bad boy will make waves at a kid’s birthday party. But let’s face it, adults will love it too. 

6. Snickerdoodle Skillet Cookie

This cookie recipe should come with a warning: one bite isn’t enough.

In fact, ten bites aren’t enough!

Just the aroma of this cinnamony delight will have you drooling.

And when you get a taste of the warm spice and pillowy soft texture, you’ll have a hard time putting the spoon down.

Top it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of caramel, and you’re ready to serve the dessert of your dreams. 

7. White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Pizookie

I’ve been making pizookies forever. But if you’ve never even heard of them, I don’t blame you.

Basically, they’re giant pizza cookies – pizza + cookie = Pizookie.

They’re usually made in pizza pans, hence the name. But plenty of people refer to skillet cookies as pizza cookies (and vice versa).

So don’t get bogged down in the technicalities.

Because no matter what you call this white chocolate and macadamia nut treat, you’ll crave it again and again.

8. Peanut Butter Skillet Cookie

Forget bite-sized cookies. This skillet cookie is the only peanut butter dessert I’m making this summer!

It’s loaded with double flavor thanks to the creamy peanut butter and Reese’s Pieces.

And the brown sugar ensures every bite is super duper chewy.

I think it’s best topped with chopped Reese’s Cups. But you do you.

9. Double Chocolate Skillet Cookie

Have you ever eaten a warm chocolate chip cookie and wished there was even more chocolate? Then I have just the thing!

You’ll add Dutch-process cocoa powder and chocolate chips to the dough, so there’s no escaping the flavor.

Meanwhile, the fudgy texture will remind you of something between a brownie, a cookie, and a dense cake.

And while the chocolate flavor is front and center, it’s not overwhelming like some double chocolate recipes (so you can eat more!).

10. Cast-Iron Skillet Gingerbread Cookie for Two

If you think making gingerbread men is overrated, you’re in good company. 

With all the time spent fussing with cookie cutters and frosting, I’d rather make something that tastes just as good with half the effort.

That’s where this recipe comes in.

You can enjoy all the yummy gingerbread flavors without any hassle

You can have this insanely delicious skillet cookie ready in just half an hour! The only hard part is waiting for it to bake.
