We recently received the cookie dough mix as a gift. We were SO thankful! It was so delicious that it led me to finding the recipe online! It’s a must have staple recipe for your cookbook.

I got the Homecoming Chocolate Chip Cookies mix with a set of “Skookie” cast iron baking skillets. I mixed the cookie mix according to directions and put half in each skillet. After 12 minutes in the oven, (350’) the mix had liquified and spilled over the sides of the skillets and burning on the bottom of the oven. Clouds of smoke set off the smoke alarm. (The cookies were not burnt and tasted great!) Should I have left the cookie dough in a ball on the skillet in stead of spreading it out?
