Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie (Skookie)

Some days I just want to smother my worries in sweets. This is one of those days! I don’t like to worry and be upset. I’d rather be worry free and happy. As we all know all days aren’t happy and we have to deal with the reality that there are days that we worry and are upset.

I worried years ago about certain things, now I’m concerned about other issues.

Some big, some small. It’s no wonder we get “worry lines” as we get older, because we WORRY more!

This is my solution to all the worries.

Eat a GIANT Skillet Cookie,

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip to be exact.

Just one bite in and you worries will fall to the wayside. {well I hope they will}

The best part is in under 30 minutes you will be enjoying this!

It’s all made in one skillet, no mixer to clean, no large bowl, baking sheet, cooling rack. It’s a One Dish Dessert!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie  {Printable Recipe}

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

3 teaspoons vanilla

1 1/2 cups flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 egg

2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

1/2 cup pumpkin puree

1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

On stove heat 12 in. cast iron skillet on medium.

Once the skillet is hot, turn to medium-low heat, add butter. When butter is completely melted add both sugars.

Onto the sugar butter mixture

add flour, baking soda, salt, vanilla, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice and egg. stir to incorporate all ingredients.

Lastly stir in chocolate chips, don’t stir too much or they will all melt. Place skillet in preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes.

It’s done baking when two inches in from edge comes out with smooth when tested with toothpick.

Don’t bake until center is totally cooked, the pan will stay hot and it will dry out the cookie and it won’t have that really great moist center.


Serve warm with a drizzle with hot fudge sauce and vanilla ice cream and sprinkle some nutmeg on top.

I should have called it the “Worry-Free Cookie!
