Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie

skillet cookie #2SNOW DAY here in Texas!  Really, it was ice that turned all of North Texas into a ghost town.  I can’t remember when I last had a Monday off.  No complaints here, or from the puppies who live (and love) to snuggle on a cold February day.  Since everyone was home, I began my search for a sizzling skillet dessert.  Something we could pile a scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream atop.skillet cookie ice cream
