To say this cookie was a success would be an understatement :).  I found myself continuing to return for “just one more sliver” and couldn’t stop.  Dangerous, let’s just put it that way!  At least I healthified it a bit!

My original inspiration for this cookie was from a fellow AWESOME healthy living blogger,  Sarah @ SweetMiles.  She posted this late in January and I couldn’t stop thinking about it.  The ingredients are simple, and I had basically all of them on hand.   This cookie was the PERFECT way to treat myself during a crazy week!

Cast Iron Skillet Cookie

  • 1 tsp of vanilla
  • pinch of baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup of sugar

  • 1 1/4 cup of Whole Wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 cup of chocolate chips
  • 5 caramel pieces cut into quarters


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Butter your pan with the wrapper from your stick of butter OR with butter itself
  • Combine softened butter and sugar and applesauce until well incorporated

Yes, this is a healthified cookie — but it’s a darn good one.   Zach and I were discussing it and using the Whole Wheat PASTRY flour still gave it the a bit of the whole wheat flavor, but the “pastry” density.  I loved it!

  1. Yum yum yum yum! Skillet Cookies are one of my FAVORITE desserts. There is a restaurant called Mo’s in Indianapolis that makes the mod delicious skillet cookie (but who wouldn’t want to make their own at home??) 😉
