- Press half of the cookie dough evenly in the skillet to form a base. Spread cream cheese mixture evenly over the dough. Pinch chunks of remaining dough and scatter evenly over the cream cheese mixture ( don't worry if it doesn't look neat. The cookie dough will melt and smoothen while baking).
- Sprinkle additional semi sweet chocolate chips and sea salt on top, if desired.
- Bake cookie for about 35 minutes or until golden brown on the edges and firm to touch. Place skillet on a wire rack to cool. Serve warm or at room temperature (Cut at room temperature to make neat wedges or serve warm with a spoon).
