Cast iron skillets hold heat well after they are taken out of the oven. Because of this, you want to take the skillet cookie out right when it turns golden brown. If it cooks longer than that, then it will overcook in the pan after you take it out.
If there are any leftovers, then you can store the cookie in an airtight container. If there is ice cream on top, then try to scoop it off and then store it in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
You can reheat a serving of skillet cookie by placing it on a microwave-safe dish and microwaving it for 10-20 seconds.
Yes! These are just like what you would find at a restaurant like BJ’s that serves pizookies.
