Prep Time 20 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes


  • cup organic unbleached flour
  • ¾ cup organic white whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons natural cocoa powder
  • 1 stick salted butter softened
  • 1-8 ounce package organic cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup organic cane sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed organic brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • tablespoons organic vanilla extract
  • teaspoons red gel food coloring
  • 1 organic brown egg + 1 egg yolk
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F and grease your 10-inch cast iron skillet then set aside.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder, and cocoa powder then set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the butter and cream cheese together until it’s creamy and well incorporated. Beat in the sugars, sea salt, vanilla extract, and red gel food coloring. Once that mixture is light and fluffy, add in the egg and egg yolk beating it for about 2-3 minutes on medium speed. Scrape the bowl when necessary.
  4. With the mixer on low speed, gradually add in the dry ingredients, mixing just until it’s incorporated. Mix in the dark chocolate chips by hand. Allow the flours time to hydrate in the dough by resting the dough for 10-15 minutes before baking.
  5. Once the cookie dough has rested, spread the dough in the greased cast iron skillet. Place the skillet in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes, depending on how gooey you want your skillet cookie to be. The edges should be set and the center will still be gooey. Remove the skillet from the oven and cool on a baking sheet for about 10 minutes before you cut into it.
  6. Serve with vanilla/vanilla bean ice cream!
