I made this skillet cookie this past weekend to rave reviews by all my family. Instead of pecans, I added a cup of dried cherries and it was fantastic! I served it with ice cream and it was one of the best desserts we've had this summer.

The end result of this was very good, but I had to nearly double the baking time. I used the 10” cast iron skillet and baked 38 mins. It was completely raw in the center. Perhaps a 12” skillet would yield a better result. I returned it to the oven and baked a total of 73 mins and it was crispy on the edges and chewy in the center. Yum!
