There’s a restaurant chain that’s famous for its gargantuan chocolate chip cookie served in a pizza pan. It’s warm, ooey, gooey and delicious! I said to myself, I could do this at home for a lot less money. worked!

All you need is a well-seasoned cast-iron skillet and a roll of Pillsbury® cookie dough.

Slice the plastic on the roll and dump the roll in the skillet. No need to grease or spray the skillet in advance.

Then, use your fingers to press the dough evenly in the skillet. I’m very excited to say that this is so easy and so quick! Didn’t I tell you this was simple?

Place the skillet in a 375 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Make sure to use a hot pad when you take the skillet out and remember that it is heavy! I thought the cookie was not done when I took it out because it moved in the skillet. But the cookie will continue to bake in the skillet once it is removed from the oven, so no worries!

Let rest for as long as you can stand it before digging in. You can top the cookie with ice cream or whipped cream, but my family and I simply ate it right out of the pan…yummy! Now I’m thinking of new flavor creations–peanut butter may be my next adventure!
