  1. Preheat your skillet: This is key to getting that crispy exterior and gooey center. Make sure your skillet is hot before adding the dough.

  4. Keep an eye on the cookie: Skillet cookies can bake quickly, so keep an eye on it to ensure it doesn’t burn.
  5. Let it cool: After taking the cookie out of the oven, let it cool in the skillet for a few minutes before removing it. This will help it set and keep its shape.
  6. Top it off: Want to take your skillet cookie to the next level? Top it off with some ice cream, caramel, or chocolate sauce!
