Nutella Stuffed Deep Dish Cookie

  • Author: Jenna | Butternut Bakery
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 25 minutes
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 1 10" skillet cookie 1x


This chocolate chip skillet cookie has a layer of gooey Nutella baked right in the middle. It’s shear cookie HEAVEN!


  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temp
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs + 1 egg yolk
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips*
  • 1/2 cup Nutella, melted


  1. Preheat your oven to 350F and spray your cast iron skillet with some nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together your flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together your butter and sugars using a hand or stand mixer.
  4. Once that’s light and fluffy, mix in the vanilla and eggs.
  5. Slowly mix in your dry ingredients as the dough gets pretty thick.
  6. Fold in 1 and 1/4 cups of your chocolate chips.
  7. Press half of your cookie dough into the bottom of your cast iron skillet. If it’s sticking to your hands, spray them with some nonstick spray.
  8. Pour your melted Nutella over top and spread it even, leaving a 1/2 inch gap around the edge.
  9. Take large chunks of the cookie dough and gently flatten them with your hands. Lay them on top of the Nutella layer then press the seems together so you have a smooth top.
  10. Sprinkle on the remaining 1/4 cup of your chocolate chips.
  11. Bake for 25-30 minutes for a more gooey cookie and 30-38 for a more well-done cookie. I baked mine for about 28 minutes.
  12. If you’d like to just dig in with your spoon, enjoy when it’s warm from the oven. For a cookie you can slice into like the one in this post, let it cool to room temperature.


*For the big chocolate chips in the photos shown here, I used bittersweet chocolate chips by Ghirardelli.
