Welcome to the Creative Cookie Exchange!
My friend Laura, from The Spiced Life and I, created this awesome monthly event, because, well, who doesn't love cookies? Breakfast cookies, snack cookies, back to school cookies, Christmas cookies, you name it! If it can be served as a cookie I'm there!

I am always in the better late than never camp! Thank you so much for doing this with me, and I LOVE baking in a cast iron skillet! This looks wonderful!!
So happy to share the exeperience with you Laura. Thanks for sharing all you energy and yummy cookie recipes with us
Ninja, I'm lovin the little bento cookie snacks! Great idea, so sweet to look at too! Thanks for joining us!
I love the idea of the cookie exchange and would like to join in if I may- the skillet cookie looks fab:)
We'd love for you to join the Cookie Exchange Amanda. Please send me you facebook link and I'll invite you to the page and group for more details how to participate!
Yum these sound really good, I like the idea of using the big pan.
Hello Greenthumb, It is great using just one pan to make these yummy cookies. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! Happy you were here!
What a fantastic idea to include Chia seeds, Rebecka. They're good for big and little kids. I understand they improve memory, too...So glad I've got an iron skillet so I can replicate your scrumptious brownies =)
Thanks ninjabaker! Adding the Chia seeds was my way of feeling less guilty about consuming all those yummy calories. The cool part was, they gave the brownies and little crunch and a nutty flavor! My family didn't even notice I put them in!! Stealth!
Kim - Liv Life
Oh my goodness these look fabulous!! Love the skillet idea, and I like Becca's suggestion above of a pint of vanilla ice cream!!!
Hi Kim, Vanilla ice cream is not far from my mind when eating gooey brownies! Thank you for leaving a kind comment, they are always appreciated!
Karen @ Karen's Kitchen Stories
Rebecca, that looks sooo good! Thank you so much for all of your very hard work on this launch of such a fun group.
Hi Karen, it's been my pleasure working with Laura on the #CreativeCookieExchange, and doubly enjoyable meeting you and all the other lovely ladies! xoxo

Go team cast iron skillet!! I love baking and cooking with mine. I can't wait to use it for this recipe.
Thanks for all the behind the scenes work you did to make this Creative Cookie Exchange happen. It's going to be big fun to see all the cookies shared each month.
Hi Renee, I honestly don't know what I would do without my cast iron skillets, I even take them camping! Thanks for sharing your yummy cookies and being a host in our event!
Felice/All That's Left Are The Crumbs
I am another who has never tried making a skillet cookie. I can't wait to try this idea, and really, who wouldn't love a giant cookie? I'll just have to remember it is meant to be shared ;). Also, thanks for all of the hard work you have put into getting the group up and running.
Felice, gooey, chocolaty goodness and only one pan to clean up when their gone, nothing could be better than that. If you decide you not able to share the pan try making them in the smaller skillets, serve with a dollop of ice cream and you have a delicious one-pan dessert!
This looks sooo delicious! I've never tried making a skillet cookie, but I definitely have to! And the added chia seeds! Love it! 🙂
Sophie, you're going to love them! You get a little creative with skillet desserts by substituting your favorite chocolate chip cookie, sugar or ginger cookie recipe! YUMMY!
I love baking with a skillet and think this cookie would be a fun treat with ice cream melting in the middle too...looks wonderful!
Holly, you'll have to share a few of your skillet recipes. I'm always up for seeing what other cooks/bakers come up with!
I love this, Rebecka! You mix and bake it in the skillet so only one thing to wash. How great is that?! Also, it looked full of chocolately deliciousness in your sneak peek photo. This one is pretty but that one made me want some NOW. Thanks for starting this great group. Wonderful motivation to bake cookies!
Hi Stacy, Thank you so much for visiting the #CreativeCookieExchange! I was thinking about adding that photo to the post but I've already made so many changes to the post and it's super long already! The good news is... the photo that made you "want some right now" is featured in the recipe! Really so nice to see you!
Becca from ItsYummi.com
I need a pint of vanilla bean ice cream, your skillet cookie, and a great big spoon to make this a great day!
Hi Becca, I have to tell you...that's exactly how I roll! Give me a big dollop of ice cream a warm chunk of brownie and I'm set!
