Choose your cast-iron skillet and butter it up. I used a smaller one because it was just the two of us. I just used half the batter and froze the rest for another time!

It’s a great idea because you have cookie dough ready in a pinch!

If you try this recipe comment below and let me know how you like it! I’m in LOVE with this cookie! (if you couldn’t already tell)

Do you have a cast iron skillet? What do you love about yours?

They are the best! I LOVE how mine is so seasoned, I can cook anything in them! I’ve learned that I won’t use it if I store it away. I use it as my only skillet (well I have two of them) and I just leave them on my stove so I have easy access.

Now, I’m not scared of them anymore! And I can make cookies!
