Skillet cookie tips:
When you press the batter into the pan, you should butter your hands. It will make things way easier.
Also, you don’t have to use mini chocolate chips. I prefer them because I like the way they distribute throughout the cookie.
Depending on the size of your skillet, you might have leftover cookie batter. I just baked a small batch of cookies with the leftover batter. If you make cookies, cook them for 12-15 minutes.
When you pull the cookie out of the oven, you have to let it cool for about 20-30 minutes.
After the cooling period, you can decide how you are going to eat this delicious skillet cookie. There are several serving options. You could totally eat it plain. However, we decided to have a little more family fun with this skillet cookie. We topped ours with ice cream, caramel and hot fudge sauce. We even formed a smiley face out of the ice cream. My daughter loved it!
I hope you and your family love this skillet cookie recipe!
