Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup orange, yellow and brown M&M's, divided
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 tablespoon turbinado sugar
  • Chef notes

    Use leftover Halloween candy to make this delicious skillet cookie.

    Preparation

    Preheat oven to 350°F.

    In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.

    In a second large bowl, add the butter and sugar. Using a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, beat until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Pour in the dry ingredients and beat until just combined. Fold in 1/2 cup M&M's.

    Coat a 10-inch cast-iron skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Using an offset spatula, spread batter into skillet. Scatter remaining 1/4 cup M&M's on top and sprinkle with turbinado sugar. Bake 25 minutes.

    Cover with foil, then bake 5 to 10 minutes, until the cookie begins to pull away from edges of the pan but is still soft. Cool 30 minutes before slicing into wedges.
