Have You Ever Had A Skookie?

We have been making these chocolate chip cookie
sundaes for years and years.  They always are a big hit,
but I received these cute cast iron skillets as a gift
from my daughter's sister in law, Lis and they are
a lot more fun than putting the cookie in a small tin or
a disposable foil mini pie pan!  Besides, they are huge
and I love to make desserts that people can share -
probably 2 on this one.

The company that makes these 7 inch pans calls them Skookies,
for skillet cookies.  You can find them on Camp Chef's
website by clicking here.
Or you can make them as I described, in a small tin or a
disposable foil mini pie pan.

For the warm chocolate chip cookie I used a variation
of a Mrs. Field's cookie.  Do you remember when her
stores were in all the malls?  We had never had chocolate
chip cookies like that before - so full of chocolate.  She
revolutionized chocolate chip cookies.

Mrs. Field's Chocolate Chip Cookies
(from Mrs. Field's I Love Chocolate Cookbook)

Preheat oven to 350.
In a large mixer bowl cream:
2 sticks, or 1 C. softened butter
1 C. packed dark brown sugar
1/2 C. granulated sugar

Beat in:
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla. 

In another bowl whisk together:
2 1/2 C. all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt.

Add the flour mix to the butter mix.  Beat
until combined.  Then add 2 C. semi-sweet chocolate
chips (or whatever chips you prefer). 

Spray the Skookie pan with Pam and
press about 3/4 C. dough into each pan.  Bake
for 10-12 minutes.  These are best if they are a
little underbaked!

Remove from oven. 

Have your husband scoop you 3 perfect balls of
rich vanilla ice cream - have you tried the Kirkland brand
from Costco?  It is the smoothest, richest ice cream but it
packs a whallop of fat grams too.  We went ahead and
used it since we were indulging!

Top with Hot Fudge Sauce, whipped cream and chocolate

Super Simple Hot Fudge Sauce

Melt in a microwave safe bowl for 1 minute
1 C. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cube (1/2 C. ) butter

Stir and melt for another 30 seconds if needed.
Add 1- 14 oz. can sweetened condensed
milk and 1/8 C. milk and stir until blended. 
Heat through.

I think the Skookies are best served warm, so you might want
to make the ice cream balls ahead of time and place them
back in the freezer to harden up.

Indulge in one!

Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.


  1. Yum. I've had them by the name of Pizookie ( for pizza cookie) but I love those little pans for them! Have only had them in the disposable aluminum pans.

  2. Wow! I've never heard of this but it sounds great! This is on my to do list!

  3. I haven't before, WILL now though Yum!!

  4. I believe I gained a pound or two just reading this. I really can't imagine anything I'd like better! Chocolate chip cookies are my fav!

  5. Oh my goodness! This looks out-of-the-ballpark delicious. The button on my pants just popped, thanks. LOLOLOL!!


  6. I'm worried about my backside & thighs now that we are friends... You always come up with the best receipes... Not thigh friendly though my friend! But, where's the fun in being good. RIGHT?
    Thanks for sharing.

  7. Oh my, Jacqueline. I finally bought a 10-inch skillet, and I think it's time to make a giant skookie! I love the name:) I better wait till I have people around to help me eat it though. Have a great week!

  8. Mmmm.... this looks like a good reason to buy the skookie pans! I just love kitchen gadgets. I am officially on the look out for them now.

  9. Looks like a fun idea! I just had a very healthy lunch and feel I should reward myself:@)

  10. How wonderful. Two favorites in one!


  11. this is the kind of food i crave... which is not a good thing!

  15. Never heard of these! I will share w/ my DD's:) Too wonderfullly fun for them.

  16. Wish I'd seen this before I baked cookies last night. It looks like my dough could have gone on to better use! Aside from a small discrepancy in the amount of salt, that cookie recipe is the same as the one on the back of Redpath brown sugar bags -- my favourite, no-fail recipe!

  18. Hi, yes the first time I had one of these was with you years ago at the Pizza Factory -- you had the dessert come before the pizza -- how unusual -- LOL! I have seen these fun pans at Tai Pan and have almost bought them. I do remember the Mrs. Field's craze -- yum this looks soooo good! Joni

  19. Those look delicious and have a great presentation.

  20. Oh goodness- these look AMAZING! This is incredible- you know- recently when our power was out with the storm... (ugh... that one I just posted about a week or so ago that did all the damage)- we tried to make cookies on the stove top because the oven doesn't work without the power- but it didn't work all that well- the cookies didn't really cook much- I guess we should have had one of those wee pans! Thanks for sharing this! :)

    Oh how I miss Mrs. Fields! I could gain weight just walking by her store in the mall. I love skookies! I'm going try these. You are so creative and just totally amazing!

  22. I just gained almost 11 lbs. :-)
    These look delish! I can only imagine how my grands would dig into them. Thanks so much for sharing!


  23. Oh, my I have had these, but yours looks delish! I am loving everything here, especially that dream kitchen *sigh* maybe one day for me! Thaks for sharing!

  24. Oh my goodness, I had one of these in a restaurant and it was amazing!

    I'm hosting a weekly link up, Sweet Tooth Friday, and I'd love to have you share your recipe.

  25. We enjoy a treat like this at a local pizza joint and my husband has been begging me to try it at home. I need those pans! Thanks for sharing!

  26. These look sooo good! I love the whipped cream and chocolate on top of the ice cream and cookie!

  27. I've never had a Skookie! (And if I have one, I'm not sure if I'd want to share.) Those little skillets are cute. :)

  28. Oh Jacqueline, this looks like something that would entice me to eat the whole pan full by myself! I may have to get some of those pans (if I can just figure out where I'd store them). I know I'm going to be making some of these skookies (even if it's in a foil pan. Thanks for sharing this indulgence for Favorite Things. I'm afraid it will become one of my favorite things! laurie
