Looking for a hot cookie dough recipe for two (or three or four)? Making hot cookie dough is easy to recreate at home.


  • 2 sticks salted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cups light brown sugar (packed)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Cast iron pan/skillet
  • Wooden spoon or rubber spatula
  • Two mixing bowls
  • White sugar
  • Brown sugar
  • Butter
  • Eggs
  • Vanilla extract
  • Flour
  • Baking powder


  1. Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. While the oven is heating, cream together your butter, granulated sugar, and packed light brown sugar. Mix until well incorporated, and the mixture looks fluffy and light in color.
  3. Once mixed, add in your egg and vanilla extract. Stir to mix.
  4. Sift your flour into a separate bowl. Add to it your salt and baking powder.
  5. Pour your dry flour mixture into the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Be very careful not to overmix.
  6. Lastly, take your chocolate chips and gently fold them in using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula.
  7. Butter or oil a cast iron skillet (preferably one that is 8 inches) for easy release of the hot cookie dough.
  8. Press your cookie dough into the skillet, leaving about 75% of the pan full from the bottom up.
  9. Place your skillet cookie in the oven and bake for about 32 minutes or until the edges are slightly brown. The resulting cookie dough will have a soft center.
  10. Allow your hot cookie dough to cool slightly, and then cut into portions.


  • Serve with a dollop of ice cream or freshly whipped cream along with a few extra chocolate chips.
  • You can freeze this hot cookie dough to warm it for later. The cookie dough keeps in the freezer for up to 3 months at best quality.
