This might be a lazy girls guide to making cookies. But I don’t care. Some days I just don’t want to scoop out all the little cookies and bake them pan by pan. Just one and done! And peanut butter + chocolate = success and happiness.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

Ingredients:

  • 1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
  • Scant ½ cup of creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tsps. vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups AP flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 bag chocolate chips (or 1 ½ – 2 cups)

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Melt butter and peanut butter in an 11 inch cast iron skillet. You can do this on the stove top over medium heat or in the oven. Allow butter and peanut butter to melt. Remove from heat and stir in sugars and vanilla with a fork or wooden spoon. Let rest for a couple of minutes so when you add the eggs they don’t cook.
2. Crack eggs onto the butter and sugar mixture, and use a fork or wooden spoon to whisk it into the mixture. Place flour, baking soda, and salt on top, and very carefully stir into the mixture until smooth and well-mixed with your fork/wooden spoon. Stir in most of the chocolate chips. Pat everything in place so it is mostly even. Sprinkle the rest of the chocolate chips on top of the cookie. Place in the oven for 25 minutes, or until starting to turn golden on the top and around the edges, but still soft in the center. Serve with vanilla ice cream for a special treat or let cool to room temperature and cut into wedges for serving.

Here I am mixing in the sugars. Also, you can kind of see to the left, I used these mini Hershey chocolate chip kisses which worked great in this dish.

Before on the left. It is a bit crumby, like peanut butter cookie dough can be, but on the right you can see it all bakes together beautifully.

If you had a group of people, I would seriously bake this for them for dessert. It comes together in minutes. Take it out of the oven, scoop some vanilla ice cream on there, drizzle with some caramel and you will have friends for life. Enjoy!
