WELL, HI! This is my first official post since the little blog vacation I took in November. I had planned to start blogging again on December 1st, but that didn’t happen. And I meant to post this skillet cookie recipe last week, but that didn’t happen either. I ended up hating the photos and reshot them over the weekend. Annddd I might have gotten a little lazy during my blog vacay. 😛

But I’m *officially* back now and sharing this Snickerdoodle Skillet Cookie recipe with you today!

I made this cookie last year and absolutely loved it. I’ve mentioned before that I’m not a pro when it comes to baking cookies, so I opt for cookie bars and skillet cookies instead. They’re basically impossible to mess up! Plus you are always guaranteed that super soft center that everyone loves about cookies. I mean, that’s the whole reason for the existence of cookies, is it not?

So, if you need something to make for your family or take to a holiday party, you won’t have to worry about messing this recipe up and then adding to the chaos that *is* the holiday season. If you decide to take this giant cookie somewhere, but don’t want to lug a heavy cast iron skillet out of your house, it can also be made in a square baking dish or round cake pan. Just watch it closely while it’s baking, because the bake time will vary depending on what you use.

I ended up making this skillet cookie three different times before it was FINALLY acceptable for the blog. The first cookie was a little bland, but the second cookie was *perf*. The third time around, when I reshot the photos, I added the white chocolate chips and the drizzle. I took one of the cookies to work, where my coworkers ate pretty much all of it before lunch. (Snickerdoodle skillet cookie pairs well with a cup of coffee!) My boss described it as “criminal.” So there you have it. A skillet cookie so good it could be illegal. 😉
