Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Skookie

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie |

A bar cookie made in a cast iron skillet. The middle is soft and loaded with gooey chocolate and peanut butter chips, a perfect contrast to the crispy, chewy  edges. 

We’re still in love with the skookie at our house. You use half the batter of a traditional cookie, so it comes to together quickly and cooks up in half the time of thicker bar cookie recipes. Perfect for those nights when your sweet tooth comes calling.


You don’t even have to worry about spreading the dough all the way to the edges of the pan. In fact, it’s really better if you don’t since the cookie will spread as it cooks.

I used smooth peanut butter in this recipe, but you could also use chunky peanut butter. Or maybe even better, stir some finely chopped peanuts in to the batter along with the chips.

To serve, I like to use a pizza cutter to cut it in to wedges. If you like peanut butter cookies, you’ll love this peanut butter chocolate chip skillet cookie. I know I do.

Yield: 8 - 12 servings

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Skookie


  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons butter, divided, softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter chips

Preheat the oven to 350ºF and grease the bottom and sides of a 9-inch cast-iron skillet with 2 tablespoons butter.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine butter, sugars and peanut butter, beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add egg and vanilla, mix on high speed to combine.

On low speed, add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until combine. Stir in peanut butter and chocolate chips.

Press the cookie dough into the prepared skillet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the edges are crisp and the cookie is golden and cooked through. Remove from oven. Serve warm.

    I just tried this recipe as written except did not grease the pan with the extra 2 tablespoons of butter. I coated the bottom of the cast iron skillet with a thin layer of butter. The cookie baked up just fine with crispy and chewy edges. That extra butter is not necessary for success. It is delicious!

    Just had to tell you that this is absolutely fantastic!!! I am a baker, and a very picky baker. I doubled this recipe and baked it in a 12″ skillet, and it was the best cookie I have had in years. Can’t wait to try more of your recipes!

    Barbara, thank you for this wonderful recipe. It’s one of the best new recipes I’ve found in a long time. Tip for others who don’t have a skillet: I used a ceramic pie pan and it turned out perfect!!

    What a beautiful skookie! I don’t know why cooking desserts in a skillet always makes it taste so much better, but it does. Great looking cookie, love the peanut butter!

    What a perfectly done skookie! I’ve always wanted to make one but at the same time, very afraid that I’ll eat the whole thing before I kids get home to share! hahaha…Okay, maybe I should make one on the weekend so they are home to help out, just to be safe. :) Wish you a happy Friday and a beautiful weekend ahead.

    I will make this for son and his friends. I always make a chocolate chip blondie in one big pan when i want chocolate chip cookies but don’t want to spend an afternoon standing by the oven and scooping out sticky dough. This looks perfect for me and delicious to boot! Son and his friends will love it! (So will I)

    This is just the thing to satisfy my craving today! It’s cold here and I want something warm, sweet and comforting! This fits the bill perfectly.

    I’m baking one-handed these days, so I love that there’s no scooping involved! This sounds wonderful- I’d love a slice (or two.) :)
