“As I mentioned here before, my boyfriend refers to himself as a ‘cookie monster.’ So as you can imagine, I make a lot of cookies for him for special occasions. And while I love to give him something that makes him happy, I am frequently aggravated by how much time it takes. Prepping, baking, and cooling sheet after sheet of cookies can take so long it usually wears me out – and that’s before I’ve tackled the sink full of bowls, baking sheets, and utensils still left to clean. So when a friend showed me a recipe (on the blog Sophistimom) for a giant cookie baked in a skillet, I knew I had to make my own version. It takes half the time and effort of regular cookies, and is just as delicious!” – Andrea

Andrea returns to Weekly Greens with yet another stellar baked treat! If you missed her delicious pie last Thanksgiving, you ought to be very sorry. But there’s always next fall – lucky you. An avid baker since she was a teenager, Andrea developed this recipe especially for her boyfriend, a self-described “cookie monster.” She’s had many mishaps in the kitchen, including shrunken pie crusts, charred brownies and flaming pot holders, but tries to follow Julia Child’s advice to “never apologize at the table.” Andrea and her boyfriend live in Washington, D.C.

Was thinking about making these for a dinner party. Ideally I’d like each person to have their own mini skillet but maybe I’ll just do by couple. In that case it would call for 5 small skillets. How could I do this recipe that way with the butter and sugar? Maybe you skip that part and just put the dough in the skillet and bake? Just thought it would be fun to serve it in the skillet with ice-cream on top.
Hmm, I like your idea! That would be fun for a dinner party. My proposed solution creates a lot more dishes, but it’s the only way to get all the proportions to work out for sure. I’d do the recipe as directed in a large skillet all the way up until the point where you are going to press it down. At that point, I’d divide it evenly amongst the 5 skillets. They’d have to be pretty small skillets, otherwise, I’d make two batches just to be sure there is enough. If you do this, be sure to take pictures and post on the WG Facebook page (www.facebook.com/weeklygreens). I’d love to see how it turns out! Good luck.
