Oatmeal Chocolate Toffee Skillet Cookie
Sadly, summer has passed, but wonderful memories remain. What I love about summer is the simplicity: relaxed schedules, easy meals, and later bedtimes. There is no rush and with that, at least in my house, there is no fuss (well, there is less of it…). This is a simple skillet cookie recipe that I created for my younger son who, like myself, is a cookie lover. I have added oatmeal and toffee to make it a bit more interesting, and according to my son and husband, delicious.
This easy recipe is baked in a cast iron skillet and makes me think of campfires and glorious lazy days. Cookies are a fairly easy thing to make already, but placing the entire batter into a cast iron pan makes them even easier, including for all my non-baker friends.
Kids can easily make this themselves, just remember to help them with removing the pan from the oven as it will become extremely hot! Many people ask about how to care for a cast iron pan. Properly “seasoning” is essential, though increasingly they come ready to use. For tips on how to preserve your cast iron pan, please click here. Slice the skillet cookies up and serve them warm right in the pan to keep this easy. There will not be leftovers. If you are a cookie person, be sure to check out my fun compost cookie recipe as well.
