I think skillet cookies are quite possibly one of our family’s favorite methods for making cookies! The biggest thing to remember about a skillet cookie is that you want to make sure you don’t over-bake the skillet cookie.
With a skillet cookie, you want to bake the skillet cookie until just set. You want the middle to be a little soft when you take it out of the oven; or once it cools it will be too dry.
I don’t really know why, but Wednesday seems to be the perfect day for cookies. Today’s cookie of choice is Double Peanut Butter Skillet Cookie.
If you love peanut butter & chocolate, you will love this cookie!
Use any ingredients you want to. I simply looked at what I had on hand, mostly odds and ends, put together a few of my favorite flavors and that was it. I find more and more my kids love the impromptu desserts that we create. They think it’s fun to see different things thrown together that aren’t already in a recipe.
I may have mentioned this before, but I am a huge fan of the Betty Crocker Cookie Mixes. Why? Because they always turn out well and they’re very easy to work with when you have limited time.
I am telling you all this because we all have busy lives, and it’s nice to have a go-to in the pantry that you know you can easily make a tasty little dessert with.
Skillet cookies are great fun for casual get-togethers, camping, busy school nights, sleep-overs, and just about any occasion you can think of, kids love them!
Double Peanut Butter Skillet Cookie
1 pouch (regular size) Peanut Butter Cookie Mix – I used Betty Crocker
Vegetable Oil, Water, and Egg called for on back of package
1 – Peanut Butter Snickers Square (3.56 oz.) & 1 regular size Peanut Butter Snickers – use any amount of Peanut Butter Snickers you want to
Garnish, white chocolate peanut butter cups – I used approximately 2-3 ounces, chopped
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray nonstick skillet with a little bit of nonstick cooking spray, just to be sure.
2. Follow instructions on back of package for cookie dough preparation.
3. Press dough into a nonstick skillet with hands, or place a small plastic sandwich bag on hand and spray with nonstick spray and press into nonstick skillet.
4. Sprinkle chopped candy bar on top of cookie dough in skillet. Gently press chopped candy bar into cookie dough. Top with chopped white chocolate peanut butter cups.
5. Place skillet in oven and bake for approximately 17 minutes, oven times vary. Be sure to bake until cookie is just set. Cool completely. Cut into wedges.
MM TIP: Make sure you use an oven-safe skillet! Most skillets say on the bottom if they’re oven-safe or not. If the skillet is ove-safe but you’re not sure about the handle, simply wrap the handle in aluminum foil. Make sure handle is wrapped well.
