What better way to welcome in a Monday than with a cookie the size of your face?! This pizookie skillet has it all- you can nickname it the “clean out the pantry pie!” The cookie batter is chock full of sweet & salty snacks- chocolate chips, mini chocolate coated candies, peanut butter cups, potato chips, pretzels & chocolate sandwich cookies. It’s a shareable dessert that get’s piled high with ice cream & toppings. Serve it for a family game night or during a movie night with friends! I’d love it as the sweet ending to a spring bbq too! It’s an easy way to make dessert special & get everyone gathered around the table. You can, of course, slice it up like a pizza & serve individual slices as well.
I particularly love this recipe because you don’t have to dirty too many dishes & there’s no mixer required! You start by melting butter in a cast iron skillet, then add in the rest of the ingredients one at a time.
I combined all of my fillings in a separate bowl before adding them to the skillet, then dropped in a few scoops of the mixture at a time. This made sure everything got evenly distributed into the cookie dough.
Scoop on plenty of ice cream- any flavor will do, I prefer vanilla with a fresh cookie! I recommend topping with whipped cream as well. I planned to do just that myself, but the cap was damaged & I couldn’t get any of the cream to come out! It was still absolutely delicious without it. Reserve a bit of the fillings mixture for garnish too. Now give everyone a spoon & dig in! If you’re anything like me & my husband, you’ll be fighting over that last bite!

Now for the part everyone seems to forget about, cleaning the skillet! This can get especially tough since you cannot use soap on cast iron, but I have some tips to help!
I always use the Scotch-Brite® Heavy Duty Scrub Sponges & salt! Totally #TEAMSPONGE over here y’all! I prefer the green one (heavy duty) for my cast iron cleaning- it cleans up tough messes up 50% faster! If you’re concerned about fragile surfaces, the blue sponge is non-scratch!
First, you’ll need to rinse the skillet out to remove any loose residue. Next, shake on a layer of salt to cover the bottom of the pan. Now get to scrubbing! Rinse out salt & apply a second coat if your skillet is super dirty & need to repeat. Dry skillet immediately, make sure to get the bottom & handles too. Cast iron will rust if any water is left. Take a paper towel & rub a tiny drop of olive oil all over the skillet before putting away. My cast iron always comes out super clean using this method & stays ready for use!
I shopped for the Scotch-Brite® Heavy Duty Scrub Sponges AND the Scotch-Brite® Non-Scratch Scrub Sponges in multi-packs at Target (my happy place!); you can find them on the cleaning aisle in the dish section. They’re good for cleaning all kinds of surfaces, not just dishes! The green ones are heavy duty & good for surfaces like pots, pans, oven racks, grill racks, tools, tires & sinks. The blue ones are non-scratch & better for more fragile surfaces like non-stick cookware, counter tops, cook tops, tubs, shower tile, windows & dishes. Scotch-Brite® has a wide selection of high performance tools that make it quicker and easier to clean each & every room of your home, don’t limit them to the kitchen!
