Chocolate Chip Sourdough Skillet Cookie

So by now you all have probably figured out that I like using my sourdough starter. And yes, I’m sharing another sourdough recipe today. For this recipe you’ll be using a “fed” sourdough starter, so if yours is in the fridge, go ahead and pull it out and feed it so it will be ready for you to make this chocolate chip skillet cookie later on, because of course that’s what you’ll want to do after reading this, right? 😉

Now, let’s move on with making that cookie!

(By viewing this website you agree to its Privacy Policy:, as well as its Terms and Conditions: You can view my full disclaimer here:

You’ll start off by melting half a stick of butter in a medium size skillet. Once it’s all melted, or nearly there, remove it from the stove.

Now add the sugar, vanilla, and egg, and combine well.

Next up will be the sourdough starter, baking soda, and salt. Make sure to mix everything together well.

And lastly, add in those chocolate chips! I added some on the top of this cookie after mixing in the one cup this recipe calls for, but you don’t have to if you don’t want… they sink to the bottom during the cooking time, anyway!

Now you can place your ginormous cookie into your oven (preheated to 350 degrees) and bake for about 25 minutes, or until cooked through.

Once it’s cooked, scoop it out into your favorite bowl and top with some vanilla ice cream for a special treat… or you could just enjoy it by itself, if that’s how you like it!

I hope you’ll enjoy trying out this recipe, and be sure to check back for more!
