This delicious, big cookie is so easy to make in a cast iron skillet!


  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 cup Easter M&M’s (There are a couple of different kinds of these. I used the regular milk chocolate ones, but there are also almond, peanut butter, and mini versions available. Use whichever you like!)
  • 9-inch cast iron skillet


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°.
  2. Lightly grease your cast iron skillet with vegetable oil.
  3. In your large mixing bowl combine your brown sugar and softened butter and beat well with a hand mixer.
  4. Once mixed, add your egg and vanilla and mix.
  5. Add your flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix again.
  6. Fold in your Easter M&M’s.
  7. Press your cookie dough into the bottom of your cast-iron skillet. Feel free to press more M&Ms into the dough at this point, if you like!
  8. Bake for 25 minutes or until center is set. Be very careful when removing the pan from the oven as it is very hot!
  9. Let cool a bit, then enjoy your cast iron skillet Easter cookie!
