This Skillet Peanut Butter Cookie is perfect for all my fellow peanut butter lovers! These deep dish cookies are so good served warm with a scoop of ice cream and some peanut butter syrup on top. I adore peanut butter, probably more than I should. I love it on apples, in smoothies, and even on a spoon.

Yep… a hot skillet peanut butter cookie with vanilla ice cream and peanut butter syrup on top! It’s amazing friends!
I love pizookies from my favorite pizza place, but it’s fun to make your own deep dish cookies at home too.
This cookie recipe starts like most cookies by creaming together the butter, peanut butter, and sugars in a mixer. After it’s been mixed for 5 minutes at a medium speed you’ll add the eggs and vanilla. (You can use a hand mixer if you don’t have a standing mixer).
In a separate large bowl, you’ll put together your dry ingredients: flour, salt, and baking powder. Combine the flour mixture with the creamed butter mixtures. Once combined you’ll add the peanut butter chips.
This recipe fills four mini skilled. I like using the 6.5″ mini skillets – perfect for sharing! Press the cookie dough into each cast-iron skillet and bake in a preheated oven.
Once baked I let them cool for 10 minutes before adding the vanilla ice cream on top.

How to Make Peanut Butter Shell for Ice Cream
To make the peanut butter syrup you just melt some peanut butter in the microwave. Have you tried it? Put a couple tablespoons of peanut butter in a glass measuring cup and microwave for about 20 seconds and stir.
When you pour it on top of the ice cream it hardens, almost like a peanut butter shell over the ice cream… amazing friends!
