Am I the only person who loves the smell of freshly baked cookies in the home??

There is just something about freshly baked cookies that really make the home more home-ly (yes I made that up) and inviting. I have heard, and I am really not sure if it is true or not, that people will bake cookies right before an open house to entice potential home buyers. I am not sure if that really works or not, but I bet it surely makes the guest want to go out and buy a cookie or two.

As much as I enjoy a homemade cookies every now and then, I really do not enjoy pulling out multiple cookie sheets and dropping individual cookies on each of them and waiting for all of the batches to be completely finished. Whew! I am getting tired just thinking about all of that work…I am all about keeping it quick and simple…nothing too complicated here.

So of course this time I decided to share with you my favorite way to make freshly baked cookies the easy way. Are you ready?? Once the cookie dough is finished and ready to be put into the oven…spread all of the dough into a skillet that has been lightly sprayed with non-stick cooking spray and put those bad boys into the oven and wait for the magical aroma to happen.

    I make chocolate chip cookies for my kids at least once every week. However, I’ve never tried making a big skillet cookie. I’ll have to try making a skillet cookie for them one day.

      Wow once a week…I need to stop by your house 🙂 The skillet does provide for something different and saves a few steps.

    Wow that one looks perfect. It’s one of my favorite smells (and tastes) for sure. I’ve only seen the cookie skillets in a local restaurant around here but I’ve never tried one. My kids would love it!
