M&M Cookie Pie

So, on one of the blogs I read, she shared a recipe called "Kitchen Sink Skillet Cookie." It's very similar to my Heavenly Skillet Cookie. I liked the look of the new recipe, but decided to play with it a bit and combine some ideas. This was the result!

This is, without a doubt, perfect. And since it was a combination of a couple different recipes, it needed a name! Adrian didn't really come up with anything (but hey, he's only 2 1/2, so...). Gabriel, however, came up with the name "M&M Cookie Pie." (And let me tell you, he was pretty proud of himself!)

However, as to the name-- it doesn't have to be M&M's! Use Reese's Pieces, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, whatever... (Gabriel does strongly recommend M&M's though! And Adrian doesn't recommend any changes either.) ;)

Remember, comments make the pregnant lady happy! What's your favorite skillet dessert recipe?

M&M Cookie Pie

  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ½ cup + 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¾ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup old-fashioned oats
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup mini M&M’s
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • ½ cup white chocolate chips
  • ½ cup peanut butter

  1. Preheat oven to 350°, and spray cast iron skillet (or 9”x9” pan) with cooking spray.
  2. In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter. Add sugar, eggs, and vanilla; whisk to combine. Add flour, oats, baking soda, salt; mix well. Add in M&M’s and chips. Reserving a heaping cup, press the dough into the skillet. Set aside.
  3. In a small microwave safe bowl, melt peanut butter til runny. (Approximately 30 seconds.) Pour peanut butter over the pressed dough. Drop tablespoon-sized chunks of the reserved dough into the skillet.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until edges begin to barely crisp up and most of the top surface of the cookie has set. The center may not be completely set. Careful not to overbake!
