Peanut Butter & Chocolate Skillet Cookie
Recipe type: Dessert
Total time: 
Serves: 6
A decadent jumbo peanut butter cookie with rivers of warm chocolate...serve with vanilla ice cream for a perfect treat.
  • ⅓ cup peanut butter
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tsp water
  • 1½ cups all purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chunks or ¾ cup chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Melt peanut butter and butter in an 8" oven-safe skillet (cast-iron is great). Stir in sugar and vanilla and remove from heat. Let rest until pan is warm but no longer very hot, about 5 minutes.
  3. Crack an egg onto the mixture and whisk it in with a fork. Add water and dump flour, baking soda and salt right on top. Carefully stir it all together, until smooth and well-mixed. Stir in chocolate chunks (they will get a little melty and fill the cookie with chocolate!).
  4. Bake for 17-20 minutes, or until starting to turn golden on the top and around the edges, but still soft in the center. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream - just scoop out a big piece with a spoon like cobbler.
  5. Tastes just as good reheated in the microwave the next day!
If you don't have an oven-safe skillet, this bakes just as well in a 9" pie plate or 8" cake pan. Mix the ingredients in a medium saucepan on the stove, then transfer to baking dish to bake.
