Author: Suzanne Cowden


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened but still cool
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats (uncooked)
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream


  • Heat oven to 350° F.
  • In the bowl of a standing electric mixer, beat butter and sugars with the paddle attachment until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; beat well. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to the butter mixture, beating until just combined. Stir in oats and chocolate chips; mix well.
  • Press dough into the bottom of a 10-inch ovenproof skillet, spreading it evenly in the pan. Bake for 20 minutes or until the top is lightly browned (do not over-bake as the cookie will continue to bake after it comes out of the oven). Cool for about 10 minutes.
  • Scoop ice cream directly into the skillet and serve, or cut into wedges and serve with scoops of ice cream.
