Cast Iron Cookie Skillet Recipe

iron cookie skillet

Cast Iron Cookie Skillet is an old family recipe that my grandmother used to make every Christmas! I’ll never forget the smell of her kitchen, and how she would always let me help mix up all the ingredients and pour them into the cast iron skillet. The best part was when we would take it out of the oven and put it on top of our tree to cool. My favorite has always been chocolate chip cookies, but you can add in whatever kind of cookie dough you like (or even brownies!) Now instead of baking these in a traditional oven, I use my cast iron pan with real firewood! It makes for some pretty awesome memories and yummy cookies too!!

Follow these simple steps

A close up of a woman


1.5 cups of flour

2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup plus 2 tbsp butter, softened

3/4 cup sugar (we used coconut palm sugar)

3/4 cup brown sugar (we used raw unprocessed honey) (if you get tired of cast iron cookie skillet recipes that use alternative sugars such as maple syrup or molasses then this will be a nice change for your taste buds)

2 eggs (free-range organic is best!) (you can also use flaxseed gel or some other egg replacer)

2 tsp vanilla extract

2 cups chocolate chips (or any other add-in’s)


1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

2. In a bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

3. In another bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla extract. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until well combined. Stir in the chocolate chips (or other add-ins).

4. Spread the dough evenly in a lightly greased cast-iron skillet. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.

5. Allow cooling for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy!
