Irish Cream Skillet Cookie

Tulsa State Fair

Irish Cream Skillet Cookie-Jones-Blue Ribbon Group 2

Looking for an easy, Irish-themed cookie for St. Patrick’s Day coming up? Make this one! Sherrel Jones did for the 2016 Tulsa State Fair and won 1st place honors (and won a nice prize from the makers of Gold Medal Flour).

When we re-made it, we split it up into two mini cast iron skillets. So simple, so cute, and SO DELISH!BTW – It goes great with ice cream. Enjoy!



Irish Cream Skillet Cookie

1 cup flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/8 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup packed brown sugar

1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, divided, melted

1 egg

2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons Irish cream liqueur, divided

1 cup powdered sugar

1/2 cup white chocolate chips

1 cup powdered sugar

1 tablespoon milk

1/3 cup toasted chopped pecans


Preheat oven to 350°F, grease or use cooking spray on a 10-inch iron skillet. Measure 1 cup flour; add baking powder, baking soda and salt and set aside. In large bowl, stir the brown sugar and 1/3 cup melted butter. Mix in the egg and 2 tablespoons and 1 teaspoon Irish Cream liqueur. Mix in the flour mixture until well blended. Stir in white chocolate chips. Spread into prepared skillet.

Bake 22 minutes or until set in center. (We used two 6-inch skillets and they were set in about 15 minutes.) Mix remaining melted butter (about 2 1/2 tablespoons), remaining teaspoon liqueur, powdered sugar, and milk. Drizzle on top of cookie and sprinkle with pecans. Cut as desired.
