This Giant Skillet is quick to make AND you make it all in the one pot. Stir it together and eat it with friends
“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.
