  • Cast Iron Skillet (linked below)
  • Mixing bowl (linked below)


  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup salted butter softened
  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour *see note
  • 1 1/3 cup Mini Reese's peanut butter cups halved

Optional topping:

  • 1/2-3/4 cup chocolate melting wafers


Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Cream butter and sugars together, then mix in egg, peanut butter and milk. Add dry ingredients and mix well to combine. Chop Reese's peanut butter cups in half, then gently fold them into the cookie dough.
  • Take a 10 inch cast iron skillet and grease lightly with butter. Place the cookie dough into the cast iron skillet and spread out with a spatula until the surface is even.
  • Move oven racks to the center of the oven and bake the skillet cookie for 25-30 minutes, or until nicely browned on top and a tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow the skillet cookie to cool for 10 minutes, then serve warm with ice cream.
  • Optional: Melt the chocolate melting wafers in the microwave or over a double boiler and then drizzle over the skillet cookie before serving.


Note* Add flour sparingly to the cookie dough to keep the skillet cookie from turning out dry.
