I’m a huge fan of chocolate chip cookies. It’s my favorite dessert!

Sure, you could cut this skillet cookie into small slivers, but I like to create 8 large servings.

Add a big creamy scoop of old-fashioned vanilla ice cream to the top of a warm skillet cookie slice, and you’ll be in dessert heaven.

Do you have a boxed cookie mix on hand, and wondering if you can bake it in a cast iron skillet?

The answer is a resounding YES! In fact, I used this Betty Crocker bag mix just the other day to make a quick skillet chocolate chip cookie.

Just follow the instructions on the bag, and then bake for about 20-24 minutes.

Now, don’t get me wrong… my HOMEMADE skillet cookie is definitely superior.
