More to Love

The cookie monsters of the world have long-debated the best flavor combinations — chocolate chip or oatmeal-raisin; peanut butter or cinnamon-sugar. But there's one fact that can unite us all: The bigger the cookie, the better. Here are eight oversize skillet cookies to prove it. Bake one up and serve celebratory slices at your next party, or just reinvent the cookie jar for an everyday snack.

Snickerdoodle Skillet Cookie

The way to get this giant snickerdoodle to crack on top is to make one big ball of dough, roll it in cinnamon and sugar, then put the whole thing in a cast-iron skillet without pressing it down. It spreads as it bakes, making the signature crack in the center while the sugar on the bottom caramelizes into an irresistible crust.

Peanut Butter Skillet Cookie

Baking this cookie in a cast-iron skillet creates irresistibly crisp edges, while the center remains moist and sandy. To make it even more special, try heating some of your favorite jam to drizzle over the top, then serve with a glass of cold milk.
