Snickerdoodle Skillet Cookie

  • Author: Molly
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 4-6 servings 1x


This Snickerdoodle Skillet Cookie might just be the best thing I’ve ever baked. EVER. A gooey, spiced snickerdoodle in a giant skillet cookie form – served hot and topped with ice cream and caramel sauce, this dessert is one for the books!



For the Cookie Dough:

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

For the Cinnamon Sugar:

  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Optional Toppings:

  • Vanilla ice cream
  • Whipped cream
  • Caramel or chocolate syrup


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and lightly butter a well-seasoned, 10-inch cast iron skillet.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the eggs and vanilla until creamy and lightened in color, about 3 more minutes.
  3. Mix the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl and then gradually add the mixture to the wet ingredients.
  4. Spread the dough evenly in the prepared skillet and then place in the preheated oven.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden on top and around the edges. The edges should be crisp and the center should have a SLIGHT jiggle to it. Resist the urge to overbake this – a little gooeyness is a good thing.
  6. While the cookie is baking, whisk together the cinnamon sugar by combining the sugar and cinnamon in a bowl.
  7. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar evenly over the top of the cookie while it is still warm from the oven. Be generous!
  8. Serve while warm and top with ice cream, whipped cream, and caramel or chocolate sauce (or whatever combo of toppings you prefer!).
