  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  3. Open one pack of Pillsbury Sugar Cookie dough, and press firmly on the bottom of the skillet. The well-seasoned skillet should be nonstick, so no need for butter.
  4. Add semisweet chocolate chips, Amercian Classic Caramel Bites chopped hazelnuts. Press slightly into the bottom sugar cookie dough.
  5. Open the other Pillsbury Sugar Cookie dough and add a little bit at the time on top. Use spatula and fingers to evenly spread the dough. It doesn't have to be perfect because the cookie dough will slightly expand and fill the gaps.
  6. You can add more chocolate chips and chopped hazelnuts on top if you desire.
  7. Bake the skillet cake in the preheated oven for 25-27 minutes.
  8. Allow it to cool down for about 20 minutes before cutting into wedges and serving.
  9. Dust with cocoa powder and add more crushed nuts.

Recipe Notes

  • You can use the smaller skillet, but in that case, one sugar cookie dough log, split in half might be enough. 
  • You can use PB chips instead of caramel bites.
  • After it bakes, skillet cake will be very soft, and when it cools down it will have the gooey texture inside, but the top will be firm.
  • Since it has two layers of cookie dough, you must know that this is not your average cookie, and it does need time to bake.
  • You may use other nuts.
