Cast Iron Skillet recipes have come a long way over the years. By far my cast iron skillet is my favorite pan in my kitchen since it is so versatile. You can make everything with them. You may ask, What is one of the best recipes you can make? Two words: skillet cookies. That’s right — those gooey, indulgent sweet treats you share for dessert at a restaurant are super easy to make at home.
Since it has been a bit chilly I wanted to do more than just a standard chocolate chip cookie, so I modified an apple butterscotch recipe and viola Apple Butterscotch Skillet Cookie! This skillet cookie is soft and chewy in the middle and crispy around the edges. It also has big chunks of fresh apples and sweet butterscotch chips. It is more than just a cookie; it is a truly decadent dessert!

- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup sugar

- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 3/4 teaspoon baking powder

- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 12 in cast iron skillet with non-stick spray and set aside.
- In a mixer, beat together the butter and sugars until creamy. Add in egg and vanilla.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and oats.

- Stir in apples and butterscotch chips.
- Pour ingredients into skillet (batter will be thick) and bake for 35-40 minutes or until edges are browned and have pulled away from pan and center comes out clean when pricked with a tooth pick.
