Three Days, Three Recipes: Day One, Skillet Cookies
Just in time for Christmas, here's a simple, one pan cookie recipe.
Today kicks off a three-day Good Eats bonanza. In light of Christmas, I will be giving you three cookie recipes, one a day, that you can make with the kids just in time for Santa's highly anticipated arrival.
Today, I bring you my grandmother Loretta's incredible Skillet Cookies. Like the name implies, these cookies are made in a single skillet. This recipe is easy, a great way to get kids involved and it will require minimal clean up.
Ever since I can remember my Dad, Dave, has looked forward to the annual Meier Christmas cookie weekend, just waiting for the opportunity to snag as many of my grandma's skillet cookies as he can. They are a childhood favorite of his and my grandma makes them like no one else.
For this recipe you will need the following:
- 1 stick of butter, melted
- 1 egg well beaten
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1 cup of finely chopped dates
- 2 3/4 cups of rice krispies
- 1 cup of chopped pecans
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla
- 1 bag of coconut
