Skillet Cookie Recipe as promised!

So...I growing up in Bloomington, IL, one of my favorite restaurants to visit was Ned Kellys. It was one of my faves for one special reason. Ned Kelly's had a desert called the "skillet cookie" that was a chocolate chip cookie served warm and mushy in a small skillet covered with vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup, and other toppings of your choice. Well needless to say it was one of the main reasons people frequented Ned Kellys. When I moved here to Atlanta for school a few years ago, Ned Kellys closed, but not before selling that wonderful recipe to a nearby restaurant for people to enjoy. Didnt really matter to me either way because I had already devised a plan to make my own skillet cookies, and much to my oblige, I have succeeded!!!!! I tweet about it often and have been asked every single time, "whats a skillet cookie? It sounds sooo good!". Well, it is soooo good, and its very simple to make. I promised yesterday that I would post a recipe for it, here it goes :)

You'll Need:
A small skillet (this can be substituted with a small foil pan, really anything you can make one big cookie in)
Your choice of cookie dough (homemade or store bought)
Your choice of icecream
Your choice of toppings (chocolate syrup, shaved walnuts, granola, whipped cream, etc..)

*Preheat the oven to 350

*Spray some pan in your skillet(usually not necessary if you have store bought cookie dough)

*The amount of cookie dough you put into the skillet depends on the size of the skillet and how many people you're serving. Eye this part. The point though is to make one big cookie. If cooking for a few friends I just get store bought dough and put the whole package in a foil pie pan. You dont have to pack it down or anything, the dough will spread itself out.

*Place it in the oven for 15 min. (Ned Kellys Skillet Cookies were always cooked juuust enough, so that they were very gooey. That again can be left up to your preference. I always try to mimick theirs though.)

*Once you take the cookie out, unlike baking normal cookies, the idea is to eat it fresh out of the oven while its warm and soft. Cut the cookie, I usually cut it into pie shapes if Im serving a few people. Place in a bowl and place a scoop of icecream on it. Add choc syrup or any other toppings and vuala!

Fun to make with kids as any desert is and best enjoyed with friends! :) Enjoy BabyKayks
