Have you ever heard of a Pizookie? This pizza-meets-cookie creation is really just a giant cookie baked in a skillet. Fuss-free but always a crowd-pleaser, this skillet cookie is basically the perfect dessert. And if you have a few whole-grain enthusiasts coming over, they'll appreciate the fact that this skillet cookie is made with 100 percent whole-wheat flour.
What I like most about this skillet cookie is that it's so approachable for any baking level. Don't have a fancy stand mixer? You can mix the dough by hand! Don't have a baking sheet? No worries — all you need is your trusty cast iron skillet.
If you've been wanting to experiment with whole-wheat flour, this is the recipe to start with. Even though you're using all whole-wheat here instead of a mixture of whole-wheat and all-purpose, the cookie does not come out dry. Thanks to the two sticks of butter and the dark brown sugar, the cookie has a rich, nutty flavor.
The pièce de résistance is the chopped chocolate. Instead of chocolate chips, which hold their shape for the most part during baking, the chopped chocolate melts and oozes all throughout the cookie, delivering a chocolate-filled explosion in every bite.
Serve this warm with scoops of vanilla ice cream on top. Whether you want to plate the slices or just go at this thing with forks is up to you. (The forks option is the most fun, though!)
