Kitchen Quickie: Skillet Atomic Cookie

One of the best desserts I’ve had lately was a giant cookie served in a skillet pan. Such a simple dessert but so tasty. I first tried it at a restaurant in the US and then decided to make it myself using my Atomic Choc-Chip Cookie recipe.

This is a really easy and quick recipe and I promise you it’s very, very tasty. This is the perfect wintry dessert to serve at informal dinners with friends. I say informal because you’ll be grabbing spoons and digging in… from the same pan.

This recipe will make quite a large amount of cookie dough. Use half for the skillet cookie and then you can bake up the rest in cookie-form or roll into a ball, cover in cling film and place in the freezer for another night.

  3. Using an electric mixer beat butter and caster sugar until pale and creamy.

  5. Sift plain flour and self-raising flour together in a separate bowl.
  6. Add the flour, choc chips and m&m’s to the butter/sugar mixture and stir until well combined.
  7. Once combined add the cookie mixture to the skillet pan and smooth the top.
  8. Cook in the oven for 12-18 minutes or until cookie is cooked through but still soft.
  9. Let the cookie cool for 5-10 minutes and then serve straight out of the pan, with ice cream and chocolate sauce (optional).
