Cookie Butter Skillet Cookie

A giant skillet cookie is the easiest (and most fun way!) to feed a crowd! Nothing beats a hot, fresh-from-the-oven cookie topped with warm, melted cookie butter. Best eaten right out of the pan!

  • Cast iron skillet


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 ½ cups brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 1 Tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup cookie butter divided
  • ½ cup shaved chocolate


  • Preheat oven to 375 F. Grease a large cast iron skillet (mine is 12”) with cooking spray. In a small bowl, combine flour and salt, then set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan, add butter and melt over medium heat until butter is brown and nutty, about 4-5 minutes, swirling the pan every minute or so. 
  • Place brown sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer with paddle attachment fitted. Pour browned butter on top, then mix until just combined. Let sit until butter has cooled completely, about 30 minutes.
  • Once cool, beat the butter and brown sugar on medium high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes, scraping down the sides as needed. 
  • Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition, then add vanilla. Mix until just incorporated, then scrape down the sides again. 
  • Add the flour to the stand mixer in 3 batches, mixing in each addition for about 5 seconds, and then scraping down the sides. The flour should just barely be mixed in. Pour cookie dough into prepared cast-iron pan, then smooth the top with a spatula.
  • Heat cookie butter in a microwave safe bowl for about 20-30 seconds, just to loosen it up a bit. Spoon about ½ cup of the cookie butter over the top of the cookie, then use the back of a knife to swirl it all around. Reserve the remaining ¼ cup of cookie butter.
  • Bake until cookie is browned around the edges, but still a little soft in the center, about 18 minutes (I used a 12" skillet — might take longer if using a smaller skillet as batter will be thicker!). 
  • Drizzle remaining cookie butter (reheat if necessary)all over the top, then mount the shaved chocolate directly in the center. Cut into wedges or eat directly out of skillet with spoons!
