Canada Day Skillet Cookie Recipe

Ella and I love going on Canada Day picnics at our local conservation area, and this year will be our first year with a canoe – I’m so excited!

I always pack a couple fun, patriotic snacks to enjoy on our picnic, from Maple Peanut Butter Cookies to Trail Mix with red and white M&Ms added in. This year, I’m going to blow her mind with this epic skillet chocolate chip cookie! (She’s not a huge cake fan, so a cookie shaped and frosted like a cake is perfect for her.)

Enjoying Peanut Butter Maple Cookies on Canada Day

If you haven’t had a DoubleTree chocolate chip cookie yet, this recipe is going to be a revelation for you.

These cookies are a cult-classic for a reason, with people begging the front desk for more – or asking friends to bring them back some of the cookies if their vacation has them staying at (or near) a Doubletree.

The secret recipe for these cookies is only really known by DoubleTree chefs, with the rest of us making our best guesses – but I think this recipe comes pretty darn close!

To make this recipe even more indulgent and amazing, I decided to skip the individual servings and make one giant skillet cookie. By baking the cookie in the skillet, you get a thick cookie with a crispy edge and fluffy, melt-in-your-mouth interior – basically, the ultimate cookie texture combo!

Top with red (or white) frosting and some maple leaf sprinkles and you’re all set! This is the perfect low-maintenance Canada Day dessert.

Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips

For the vanilla buttercream:

  • 2 sticks (1 cup) of butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2-3 tbsp cream
  • 3-4 cups powdered sugar
  • Red food dye, optional
  • Maple leaf sprinkles

Tip: often Doubletree cookies involve walnuts but I dislike nuts in desserts. Add 1/2 cup if you’d like!

How to Make a Skillet Cookie

Preheat oven to 350F

Grease a non-stick cast iron skillet and set aside.

   

Combine the oats, flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine butter and sugars until fluffy – about 2 minutes.

Add in the eggs and vanilla, mix well, then add in the lemon juice.

Add the flour mixture in one cup increments until fully combined.

Stir in the chocolate chips, walnuts and coconut and then fold the batter out into the skillet. (You should have approximately 1 cup of batter left over for individual cookies.)

Place the skillet in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown on top and fully cooked in the center. Watch carefully so it doesn’t burn.

To make the frosting, add the butter and icing sugar to your mixer and beat on medium speed for 1 minute. Add the vanilla and 1 Tablespoon of cream. Beat for at least one minute before adding additional sugar or cream to achieve your desired consistency. Dye red, if desired.

We used a closed star tip on a piping bag filled with the vanilla buttercream to make a pretty edging around the cookie and then sprinkles with maple leaf sprinkles.
