Ever heard of a Skillet Cookie? Me either. My friend Lisa insists they are the BEST dessert EVER created.
Basically you take a WHOLE batch of chocolate chip cookie dough and fill a 12-inch iron skillet. (Any cookie recipe will do I'm sure.) After baked to a golden brown you dump an ENTIRE carton of ice cream on top and eat in one setting.
My friend has had a total lifestyle change in the past couple of years and would only DREAM of eating a entire skillet cookie....but she still talks about them ALL.THE.TIME. So, I decided this issue needed remedied I found a 2-inch iron skillet and filled it with dough for one small cookie. I baked it and then sent her a picture. She thought it was a HUGE 12-inch dessert and wanted to kill me for tempting her. I them presented her with her very own Skillet Cookie for ONE.
The ice cream was even personal size! I'm sure all the calories were still horrible for her but I feel confident she was able to work them off in a very short time.
I think all things are good in moderation. We just won't talk about all the mini Skillet Cookies I had to test to make sure they were good enough for her.
