deep dish chocolate chip cookie pie


Why? Why is this in a cast iron pan?
Oh that's very easy to answer, and I think once I answer this you'll agree.
Well, almost all of you will agree; there might be a 3% of you that won't agree because well, maybe you have been living under a rock or something?
So you want the answer?
You sure?
It's really a simple answer.....
CRISPY THICK EDGES with gooey cake-like middle.


So when I say crispy thick edges, I mean edges that are really thick, like two inches thicker than a normal cookie. As the Barefoot Contessa herself says "how bad can that be?"

Make sure to grease up your cast iron pan reallyvwell with non stick spray.

(I changed things around a bit)
print recipe

2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 egg yolk
1 ts pure vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 ts baking soda
1 ts salt
1 & ½ cups semisweet chocolate chips

Cook notes: if you don’t have a cast iron, you can easily put this in little ceramic ramekins. Just don’t preheat at 400, only preheat at 325 degrees. Make sure you use a clean cast iron; we don't want your cookies tasting like dinner. *Cooking times vary GREATLY! Please check at the 25 minute mark!

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Grease up your cast iron skillet with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, salt and baking soda.
Cream the butter and sugars together. Add in eggs plus egg yolk, then mix. Add in vanilla and mix until just combined. Add in your dry ingredients, mix, then add in the chocolate chips.

Press the cookie dough down into your greased skillet evenly; using wet hands make sure the corners are good and even with dough.
Place in preheated 400 degree oven, then turn temp down to 325 degrees and bake for about 25-40* minutes. Might want to rotate pan halfway thru baking.
You are looking for golden brown edges and slightly cakey crumbs come thru when a cake tester is used.
Make sure to let this rest for at least an hour before slicing.


  1. Drool! I would take alllll the edges!!

  2. You evil, evil woman! I'm gonna have to whip this up now!

  3. I've wanted to make one of these for ages! Looks fabulous!

  4. Cookie pie in a grill pan? You've convinced me.

  5. This is a crazy home-run!

  6. hmm am definitely feeling the love... looks delicious

  7. Thinking about these thick cookie edges is going to get me through my Monday.

  8. You know, I just got the Joy the Baker cookbook and she has quite a few cast iron/skillet recipes in it...I need to get a better skillet so I can get my chocolate on!

  9. HAHAH! I have been waiting for this one since you posted the photo of the dough on FB. :)

  10. How can you go wrong with anything deep dish and chocolate? It looks amazing.

  11. Damn, that looks good. And I gave all my cast iron pans to my kids. :(
    Definitely ice cream on top.

  12. Omg, stop it. You are killing me.

  13. Oooh crispy/chewy edges are the best. I have to make this...all its missing is some vanilla ice cream.

  14. Oh. my. gosh. I need this now!! Thank goodness my mom gave me her cast iron skillet - making this soon!

  15. Hello,
    very nice blog!I’m an instant fan, I have bookmarked you and I’ll be checking back on a regular.See u.

  16. OMG, what a sinful treat!



  17. Definitely need this with a big scoop of ice cream!

  18. Yes, yes, yes, I am feeli,ng the love here a lot! ;) What a great idea to use a cast griddle pan! Yoehoe!

    Delightful & easy to make bars! I think I would top that with hot custard,...oh yes!

  19. Oh yeah! I can feel the love from here! So good!

  20. Okay, seriously! I know we all say it, but I'm really on a no-starch, no carbs, no sweets cleanse for about two weeks! This is insane. All I need is a really robust cup of Cuban espresso with soy milk and a nice size plate for the massive size of cookie that will go into the coffee! Boom!

    1. I am on Dukan to get rid of four pregnancies' worth of baby weight, and have been so since Christmas. (On the bright side, I have lost almost 30 pounds and have only about 20 to go.) So my comment is: WHY DO I KEEP LOOKING AT THESE PICTURES OF succulent, delectable baked goods? I am ready to climb through the screen and take a bite outta that pie!!!!

      Shorter version: YUM.

  21. Thick edges and a gooey middle…. and then plopping some ice cream on top. Um, ok, no need to twist my arm!

  22. what a terrific idea, dawn--i've never used my cast iron skillet for anything like this. crafty thinking. :)

  23. This is as close as I am going to get right now to heaven. Unbeliveable!

  24. Haha, "put ice cream on me." Are you familiar with the pizookie (pizza cookie) it's a cookie baked in a deep dish pizza pan, similar idea. Love your blog!

  25. I really need to try doing this one of these days. Looks so good :)

  26. The ingredient list says baking SODA but the instructions say baking POWDER. I've got one of these in the oven now and took a gamble with baking soda, hope I was right!


I love your comments!
