Giant Snickerdoodle Skillet Cookie Recipe

What’s better than a cookie? A giant cookie of course! This Giant Snickerdoodle Skillet Cookie is so sweet and yummy. It is topped with a powdered sugar icing and cinnamon.

I always thought it was cinnamon that gives Snickerdoodles that distinct flavor, but it’s actually cream of tartar. Without that, it would basically be a sugar cookie. If you can get through this recipe without sneaking some of the cookie dough, I’d be impressed. It is very tempting.

I love making cookies in a skillet because the skillet allows the cookie to be evenly cooked. And for some reason I always imagine I’m on a frontier cooking in my cast iron stove with my cast iron skillet. LOL! Skillets are a great tool to have in your kitchen and they will last forever if you take care of them properly. You can make desserts, dinner and breakfast in a skillet. They are so versatile.

How to Make Snickerdoodle Skillet Cookie

To make a Snickerdoodle Skillet Cookie, first you will make the cookie dough and bake it. While the cookie is baking, you will make the icing.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the skillet.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients except the flour. Mix with an electric mixer. Slowly add in the flour, continuing to mix on low speed.
  3. Add the dough to the skillet and press down so it’s evenly spread out. Place skillet in oven and check the cookie every 10 minutes or so. You want it to be not quite done when you pull it out, because it will continue baking in the skillet a little bit while it sits. It takes me about 18-20 minutes. Everyone’s oven is different. Just check by inserting a toothpick.
  4. Allow to cool slightly before drizzling with icing.
  5. Mix powdered sugar and milk until you get the consistency you like. Start with ½ cup powdered sugar and a few tablespoons of milk. Add more sugar and little milk until the icing is the thickness you want.
  6. Drizzle icing on top of the cookie. Sprinkle more cinnamon on top.
