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!
This week #SundaySupper is up to their ears in sharing wonderful short-cuts, tips, hacks, call them what you want for last minute holiday recipes!

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’
