…And I actually might post another one soon. I can’t help it that skillet cookies are so darn good, okay?
Here’s the deal with cookies: they’re kind of the perfect snack. You can dunk them in milk, or sandwich ice cream between them, or just enjoy them plain. But sometimes, the prep of chilling dough or rolling out 24 balls of goodness is just too much.
(Don’t judge me for being lazy… I’ve been indulged by, like, 3 snow days)
Plus, here’s the thing with skillet cookies: You can eat them with a spoon. (Or… slice them and enjoy a reasonable portion… I just happen to prefer the spoon-to-skillet option).
So let’s recap: no need to chill your dough, no need to make individual cookies, and easily enjoyed straight from the oven with a spoon (and some friends?).
Yeah, skillet cookies are where it’s at.
Gotta get that pretty green goodness for St. Patty’s, am I right?
Hope this giant cookie brightens up your Monday! Where I am, it’s finally starting to look like spring 🙂
And if it snows again? Well I guess I’ll just have to bake some more!
