Indulgent chocolate chip cookie with peanut butter baked in a skillet (or round baking tin). Delicious on it’s own or serve with homemade vanilla ice cream.
My top tips on making this recipe
- If you don’t have a skillet, use a round tin (about 8-9 inches) or square tin 7 inch
- Use either crunchy or smooth peanut butter, it changes the cookie texture, but they are both delicious
- Mix all dry ingredients first
- Use a handheld electric whisk to combine everything together and don’t worry if the mixture looks scrambled when you add the eggs. It will all come together when you add the flour.
- Your cookie is done when it’s darker on the outside (edges) but only golden brown in the middle. You don’t want to overbake this recipe as it can become easily dry if you do.
- Serve it directly from the skillet with your choice of ice cream or chocolate sauce.
