Loaded with chocolate chips, oats, and pecans, this delicious cookie (with a touch of cinnamon!) is baked in a cast-iron skillet. As long as your skillet is well seasoned, the whole cookie will pop right out on a serving platter making it perfect for serving as a birthday cookie "cake." Slice in pie-shaped pieces and eat as-is, or serve with ice cream and chocolate sauce.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Whisk flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt together in a medium bowl.

  • Cream white sugar, butter, brown sugar, and shortening in the bowl of a stand mixer until light and fluffy, 3 to 5 minutes. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing after each addition until fully incorporated. Mix in vanilla extract. Gradually mix in dry ingredients until combined. Stir in chocolate chips and pecans.

  • Transfer dough to a well seasoned 10-inch cast iron skillet. Press down with your fingers to distribute evenly over the bottom of the skillet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until top is firm to the touch and edges have started to pull away from the sides of the skillet, 35 to 40 minutes.

  • Remove from the oven and let cool for about 15 to 20 minutes. Run a spatula around the edges, lifting the cookie slightly as you go around. Carefully invert cookie onto a cutting board and then invert again onto a serving platter.

I love baking with my grandson, and we made this over the weekend. It was a lot of fun to mix and make, and an unusual presentation that set it aside from just the same old cookie baking routine. Plus it tastes amazing! Really moist. My only caution if you are baking with small kids with short attention spans is the 45 minute cook time...have another activity planned while it's baking.

Supervised my 8yo granddaughter making this cookie. She had a grand ol' time. It came out very well and we sliced it into small pieces. 4 stars because we both agreed it was too sweet. Next time we'll cut the white sugar down to 6 or 7 tbls. Read More

This is good but it could be better. The cookie dough tastes flat not as good as regular cookie. Read More
