I love Southern Living's recipes, which may be why I am so disappointed at the way the Deep-Dish Skillet Cookie (chocolate chip) turned out. I used to bake for a living and wanted to pull the cookie out of the oven at 35 minutes instead of 50 because they smelled done, but I stuck with the recipe only to have a dry cookie that stuck to the cast iron skillet and was extremely difficult to cut out. I ended up breaking the middle bits and had to soak a cookie ring out of my pan, it was that stuck. To cast iron. Which never sticks. I'm not sure who made this recipe, but I think they need to go back and double check their times.
I have made the Deep Dish Chocolate Chip and Pecan Praline and loved them both!! My family asks for them every week now. The one down side was the cooking spray did not work and the cookie stuck but after that I greased with Crisco with no problems.
I made the deep-dish chocolate chip skillet cookie recipe. My only deviation to the recipe was the addition of one cup chopped walnuts. The skillet cookie was hard and dry. The chips on top tasted a bit burned. What changes do you recommend for high altitude?
