6. On low speed, add the dry ingredients in thirds. When adding the last third of the dry ingredients, add the roughly chopped chocolate chips. If it becomes too difficult to mix, switch to a wooden spoon or a rubber spatula to fold in the remaining ingredients.

8. Place skillet into the preheated oven and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the top is golden brown in colour and the middle is just set. Take out of the oven and allow to cool for about 5 minutes before cutting. Slice skillet cookie into wedges. Serve as is, or with a scoop of your favourite ice cream.

Chef Notes

  • If time permits, make the dough and place into the prepared skillet. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rest in the fridge overnight, the flavours will become more pronounced.
  • For more texture, substitute 1/2 cup (150 grams) of peanuts (or desired nuts) for 1/2 cup (85 grams) of chopped chocolate.
  • If the skillet used is well seasoned, you may omit the parchment and just grease the skillet with Mirage margarine.
