Nutella stuffed skillet cookie

Guys, this deep dish Nutella stuffed skillet cookie. It’s a classic chocolate chip skillet cookie (sometimes called a pizookie) but with a layer of Nutella in the middle. So it’s basically a giant cookie with a gooey warm Nutella filling.

If you’ve never made a skillet deep dish cookie before, it’s pretty much the same as making a classic chocolate chip cookie batch, but easier. You don’t need to chill the dough, bake multiple rounds of cookies, or worry about your cookies spreading too much or too little. You just stick the cookie skillet into the oven and it comes out looking and tasting delicious.

This Nutella stuffed skillet cookie is perfect for a group since it uses the same amount of dough as a regular batch of cookies. Prep it ahead of time for a dinner party, bring it to a birthday and slice it up instead of cake, or bake it to eat all week long — you have a lot of options! Whatever you do, make sure to top it with a scoop of ice cream.

What makes this Nutella stuffed skillet cookie so delicious

A cookie skillet is incredible. A Nutella-stuffed cookie skillet is beyond this world. But what makes this cookie skillet so excellent? Let. me. tell. you.

Ingredients

Most of these ingredients are household staples. But here’s what to check before heading to the grocery store!

How to make a deep dish Nutella skillet cookie

Step 1: Prep a batch of cookie dough that you can make entirely by hand — no electric mixer required.

Step 2: Butter a 10-inch cast-iron skillet (I have one from Staub, see the FAQs below if you don’t have one!). We’ll place half of the dough on the bottom of the skillet. Then we’ll spread a layer of Nutella on top, leaving a small gap of 1/2 to 1 inch around the border to keep the Nutella inside the skillet cookie. I find an offset spatula is really helpful in spreading the Nutella and dough. Then we’ll spread the rest of the dough on top of the Nutella later, trying to keep the Nutella intact.

Step 3: Bake for 18-25 minutes, until the top is golden brown the sides have crispy edges. Let cool slightly. Either eat straight from the dish with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or slice and plate. The best part!

How to serve and store skillet Nutella cookie pie

A skillet Nutella cookie pie is perfect for a group of people. If you have a squad that loves to share, you top the entire skillet with scoops of vanilla ice cream and dig in. You can also cut the skillet into slices so everyone can have a piece and a scoop of ice cream! I’ve also cut up slices to bring to a party and they transport really well.

You can store the skillet cookie at room temperature for three days (if you have dribbles of ice cream on it, stick it in the fridge), either covering the entire skillet with foil or putting slices in an airtight container. After that, you can keep the skillet in the fridge for four more days. You can also freeze the slices for three months.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Do I need a cast iron skillet to make this recipe?

If you don’t have a cast iron skillet and don’t want to get one, you can make this cookie skillet in a 10-inch or 9-inch cake tin, 9-inch springform pan or a deep, oven-safe 9 or 10 inch skillet instead. The cast iron skillet really makes the cookie skillet feel special, so I’d use it if you can!

Where can I get a cast iron skillet?

I have a 10-inch cast iron skillet from Staub. It’s easy to clean and maintain and their products are known to last for freaking ever, so it’s a good investment. You can get the skillet here.

Can I use brown butter for the cookie skillet?

The recipe doesn’t need it since we get such incredible flavor from Nutella, but you can go for it! Just add one ice cube (or 1 TBS. of water) to the butter right after it browns to restore some of the liquid lost when cooking it down.

Can you put cookie dough directly on the pan?

You should grease the pan first with butter before putting the cookie dough on the pan.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups (300 grams) all purpose flour

  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda

  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder

  • 1 1/4 tsp. kosher salt, or another coarse salt (if you only have fine table salt, reduce to 3/4 tsp.)

  • (227 grams) unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly

  • 1 1/2 cups (320 grams) light brown sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 TBS. vanilla extract

  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (plus more to top)

  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup Nutella

  • Flaky sea salt to top

  • Ice cream to top

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°. Butter a 10-inch cast iron skillet and set aside.
  • Whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  • Add your melted butter (make sure it’s cooled slightly so it doesn’t melt the brown sugar) and brown sugar to a large bowl. Whisk vigorously until they’re fully combined. Add the vanilla and eggs and whisk well.
  • Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Using a spatula, fold in the dry ingredients until there are only a few streaks of flour left, making sure to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Press half of the cookie dough into the bottom of your skillet. Spread the Nutella on top of the cookie dough, leaving a small gap of 1/2 inch to 1 inch around the border (an offset spatula is really helpful here). Spread the other half of the cookie dough on top by placing cookie dough pieces and then spreading them out, trying not to disturb the Nutella.
  • Sprinkle some extra chocolate chips on top of the skillet so they really pop. Bake for 18-25 minutes, until the top is golden brown.
  • Top with flaky sea salt when the skillet is hot out of the oven so the salt sticks. Let the skillet cookie cool slightly.

    Eat by either topping the entire skillet with scoops of vanilla ice cream and digging in, or cut into slices and enjoy with a scoop of ice cream!
