Skillet Cookie

A Festive Skillet Cookie!

Enjoy this holiday take on a traditional Skillet Cookie with a Gingerbread Skillet Cookie! So easy to make and even better when shared right out of the skillet with a couple of spoons, maybe a scoop of ice cream as a treat or dessert.

Skillet Cookie

I’ve seen more skillet cookies than you can shake a stick at! But when I saw this gingerbread shaped skillet at Homesense, I knew I had to make a gingerbread cookie in it! 

A.K.A – Best impulse buy EVER! The had a couple other shapes as, a Christmas Tree and I think a stocking but I could only justify the one and I’m telling you…if you spot one BUY IT! I’ve looked online and I can’t find them anywhere. 

Don’t have a gingerbread shaped skillet? Well that’s ok too, because this skillet cookie works perfectly in a normal medium sized skillet as well.

Thanks to The Almond Eater’s  Gingerbread Skillet Recipe this cookie worked out perfectly! I made some minor adjustments, not for any other reason other than I just worked with what I had and it turned out great. A little crunch on the outside and soft and chewy gingerbread inside. Definitely recommend eating straight out of the skillet with a couple of spoons to share.

Let it cool for a couple minutes before you do so, if you can wait 😉
