“I’d just like a cookie that is so big it would take me all day to eat it”, said my friend Sally. I looked at her and realised that she really meant it. Sally can eat more cake, cookies and pastry than anybody I have ever met. Her house is the ideal place to deliver excess baking of any kind. That is where these giant cookies have found a home. Sally has been very down lately and I wanted to surprise her with these giant skillet cookies. “Skillet” or frypan baking has been quite the trend for a while, especially in the US, where cookies are an addiction. You’ll find all sorts of Giant Skillet Cookies are served in restaurants there.

There are no end of flavours you can make. Add fruit or any kind of nuts. Keep them as simple as the chocolate chip one above or have a little play like the chocolate hazelnut one.

SABH is a monthly blog “get together ” where people cook along the same theme. This month it’s frypan cooking. I am sure there will be lots of interesting ideas , so why not take a little look at what others are whipping up.

The hop is brought to you by  84th & 3rdThe Hungry AustralianDining With a Stud, and this months host The Capers of the Kitchen Crusader.
