20 Dec Last Minute Holiday Skillet Cookies #SundaySupper

How many of you remember the old electric skillet? My mom used hers weekly for things like fried chicken, pork chops, even beef stroganoff! It was a large square metal (very durable) vessel that when I hand-washed the dishes as a kid, couldn’t be submerged completely in the water! We had no dishwasher until I was around 11 or 12 and my sister and I washed and dried the dinner dishes. I digress!

Back to the skillet…

I chose this recipe because my grandmother made these cookies right before our eyes in her electric skillet. Oh, how I wish I had that beauty. If you find a durable retro metal one with a vent in the lid, you know where to find me. 😉 This recipe takes just a couple minutes to gather up all the ingredients needed and then a cook time of approximately 7 minutes. Once cooled down, rolling the little balls is the most time consuming of the entire process –ringing in at a whopping –oh maybe 15 minutes! Pssssst…. many hands make light work; get those kids involved!

Here’s what you’ll need. And by the way, these are REALLY yummy! And you could, just maybe splash in a little rum or bourbon with a few more ounces of cereal if you want to serve a little more mature gathering… just sayin’

    I still have an electric skillet as it is useful in Japanese cooking! Grandmas are the best. Do believe my Nona would’ve very much approved of your wonderfully festive date-studded cookies =)

      Was your skillet passed down? Or did you find one recently? I’m looking around and would love one just like my mom’s. Happy New Year my sweet friend!!! xo

    I remember my mom’s electric skillet—it is long gone! These cookies look fantastic. And a retro sweet that I’ve never seen before—thanks so much for sharing this treasured recipe.

    I’ve never made cookies in a skillet, but these look wonderful and I’d love to give them a try. Now I just need to dust off and dig out my electric skillet

    Oh I remember electric skillets for sure. My parents would make pancakes and lots of things in it. I even had one too but gave it away because I rarely ever used it. Now I wish I still had it.

    I can still remember my Mother having one of those skillets. She loved it for big Sunday breakfasts. These cookies look so delicious and are full of so many goodies.
