How to Make a Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Cast Iron Pan

Bigger isn’t always better, but there’s something mischievously fun about making a giant chocolate chip cookie. And when I realized I could bake one in my beloved cast iron pan… well, I may never make “normal” cookies again.

This giant chocolate chip cookie is pure old-fashioned goodness. Simple ingredients come together to make a treat that is sure to please your inner cookie monster. So get your cast iron pan, grab a glass of fresh milk, and get ready to have fun with this one.

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe (in a Cast Iron Pan)

giant chocolate chip cookie in a cast iron pan


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (I use Einkorn flour–buy HERE)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp sea salt (buy HERE)
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup organic cane sugar (buy HERE)
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar (I like to use sucanat brown sugar–buy HERE)
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract (buy organic fair-trade vanilla extract HERE)
  • 10 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips (I like these soy-free chocolate chips HERE)



1. Get your cast iron pan ready. Any size from about 9-12 inches will do, but this recipe is for a 10-inch pan, so the cook time may need a slight adjustment if your pan is a little bigger or smaller. (If your pan is well seasoned, it shouldn’t need to be buttered to keep your cookie from sticking. If you’re concerned about sticking, a very light layer of butter or coconut oil will do the trick.)


2. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

3. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl and set aside for later.

4. In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened butter with both sugars on medium-high speed for about 2 minutes, or until light and fluffy. Scrape the side of the mixing bowl if needed.

5. Add the egg and vanilla extract. Mix on medium speed for about one minute.

6. Add dry ingredients and mix on low until just mixed together.

7. Add chocolate chips and fold them into the dough by hand, scraping the bottom and side of the bowl to make sure all the ingredients are mixed.

8. Spread the dough into your cast iron pan and bake at 350 degrees F for 30-40 minutes or until the edges of your giant cookie are golden-brown.

9. Cool for 20 minutes and slice like a pie. Serve warm with a glass of fresh milk on the side. Enjoy!
