Peanut Butter Cup Oatmeal Skillet Cookie on cloth with oatmeal flakes in a bowl and scattered on a gray wooden background

You can make lots of things in a skillet, one of my personal favorites is making my Peanut Butter Cup Oatmeal Skillet Cookie recipe. It’s better than your average cookie because I’ve added JUSTIN’S® Classic Peanut Butter and JUSTIN’S® Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups to the dough. This cookie comes out of the oven crispy at the top, gooey in the middle.
