Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

A soft, chewy, and warm chocolate chip cookie, baked in a skillet, and sprinkled with sea salt! Believe me when I say this makes for the perfect shareable, brag-worthy dessert.

Now soft, chewy chocolate chip cookies, I can always rock with (I’m not to keen on the crunchy ones). In addition, I love a good shareable one-pot dish – anything that can be tossed in the middle of a table and everyone dig in, you can sign me up! So with that being said, I was determined to come up with the perfect sea salt chocolate chip skillet cookie! It’s so easy to make, and even better to share with family, friends and loved ones!

Recipe Tips and Notes

Nice & Slow – this is the name of the game! When baking this skillet cookie, you need to bake on a lower heat temp, for a longer period of time. Reason being, the outer edges of the cookie will done and the inside still undone.

Do Not Over Bake – If using a 8-inch skillet, your cookie will be finished baking around the 40-45 minute mark. If you’re using 10-inch or 12-inch, it will take less time around the 30 to 40 minute mark (approx. times as all ovens vary). It is important to note, that the skillet retains heat, and will continue baking your cookie even when resting outside the oven. In addition, as the cookie cools, it will firm up. In short – do not wait until the cookie is baked right through – if you can stick a toothpick through it, and it comes out clean – you’ve over baked it!

Ice Cream or Milk – come on now, you know milk and cookies go together! Pair this cookie with a glass of milk, and even better…. vanilla ice cream! You taste buds will thank you, and this is literally the best thing ever!

Don’t forget the Sea Salt – this small little ingredients takes this dessert for amazing to oh-so- amazing! Juuuuuuust trust me, we’re family now, so trust me and add some sea salt!

A soft, chewy, and warm chocolate chip cookie, baked in a skillet, and sprinkled with sea salt! Believe me when I say this makes for the perfect shareable, brag-worthy dessert.


  • 2 cups 2 tbsp Flour
  • ½ tsp Baking Soda
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 1 cup Unsalted Butter melted and cooled until warm
  • 1 cup Light Brown Sugar
  • ½ cup Granulated Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1-1½ cup Semi-Sweet or Dark Chocolate Chips
  • Sea Salt to Garnish



Heat oven to 325 degrees F.


In a medium size mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt, set aside.


In a microwave safe bowl, add butter and microwave for about 30 to 45 seconds, or until most has melted. Allow to cool for a few minutes.


Add melted butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar to a medium bowl and beat with an electric mixer until well blended. 


Add in the eggs, and vanilla and mix until combined. 


Gradually stir in the flour, baking soda, and salt, just until combined.


Gently add in chocolate chips.


In a 8" or 10" cast iron skillet, or oven-safe skillet, press in the cookie dough - see notes section.


Bake for 45 to 55 min, or until the cookie is golden brown - see notes sections. Do not over-bake your cookie (see note section above), it will continue to cook in the hot skillet when its removed from the oven as the skillet retains heat.


Remove from oven, sprinkle a pinch of sea salt on top, and allow to cool in the skillet, before cutting - I suggest a 20 min cooling period.


Slice or spoon out your portion, and serve with a cold glass of milk or vanilla ice cream.


Serve & enjoyyy!


A. I used an 8" cast-iron skillet, the larger, or wider your skillet is, the less time it will take to bake as an 8" cookie is more dense than a 12". Adjust cooking time accordingly.
