Around here (being Chicago), desserts in a skillet, like cookies, brownies, crisps, etc, al a mode are really common. Apparently not so much in other parts of the US? Some people have heard of skillet cookies and one friend told me they call them something entirely different (in Arizona they're referred to as pizookies)
Anyways, I asked for these mini skillets for Christmas just to make some tasty desserts and got them. They're 5" in diameter.
About a month later I decided to actually put them to use. I modified this recipe found via Pinterest. The best part? You mix everything in the skillet!
