Dig into this hazelnut cookie skillet, and you’ll think you’ve gone to cookie heaven!
I think I’ve died and gone to cookie heaven. Okay not literally, but this skillet has got to be the best darn cookie I’ve ever eaten. Seriously. No joke. I made this cookie skillet on a whim, and it turned out to be the best recipe ever. I know there are a ton of cookie skillet recipes out there, but what makes this one so good are the hazelnuts.
I remember when I was younger hazelnuts were hard to find. You had to go to a specialty store that you knew would sell them. Fast forward a ton of years and now they’re readily available at the grocery store. I love it. I can now get chopped hazelnuts anywhere and everywhere and add them to recipes like my Hazelnut Streusel Coffee Cake. I really love the flavor the hazelnuts give this skillet too.
Add in the chocolate chips and of course ice cream, and this is one delicious must-make recipe. What spurred me to make this recipe was my husband and I were out to eat at BJ’s Pizzeria a few weeks ago. We of course had to eat one of their pizookie’s because, duh, who doesn’t? While we were eating it, Sean said, “Cyndi you could totally make this.”
That got me thinking, and before you know it I created this delicious Chocolate Chip Hazelnut Cookie Skillet. I’ve tried numerous recipes, and this is the one I finally ended up with. It’s easy to whip up on a busy night or make it for your family and friends for a special occasion. Either way this skillet will be a hit.
PS – You could also divide the dough into small ramekins and make individual portions. It’s a fun way to have dessert that the kids and adults will both love. Enjoy!Print
