Iron Skillet Cookies
One of my Christmas gifts was a cast iron skillet set for making cookies. Well, not just cookies. You can use the pans for fried eggs, omelettes, fajitas, personal pan pizzas, etc. But when I test drove them yesterday, I made some chocolate chip cookies. Using a standard cookie recipe, I put 1/2 cup of batter in each skillet, pressed it to the edge, and baked at 375 for 12 minutes. Out came a deliciously baked cookie that's HUGE!
This would be a great presentation for dessert, with a scoop of ice cream on top, or to make a giant cookie cake for a birthday, giant ice cream cookie sandwiches, the possibilities are endless. They came out a little crispy for my liking, so my next batch will probably be 3/4 cup of batter to make them a little bit thicker and more doughy.
Overall, I'm in love though. The pans are great, nothing sticks, and they have a thousand uses! If you want some of your own, go to Linens and Things and pick up the box of Skookie skillets.
