The Biggest Cookies You'll Ever Make (PHOTOS)

Dessert will never be the same.

Let's face it: the gooey, soft center is pretty undisputedly the best part of any cookie. So if there was a way to get your cookies even softer, chewier, and thicker, you'd do it -- wouldn't you? If so, the skillet cookie may just be the answer to your dessert-loving prayers.

A giant cookie baked in a skillet, this dessert is a serious game-changer. The increased surface area and deep dish creates slices of thick, soft, and incredibly delicious cookie that puts the regular stuff to shame -- and when topped with a scoop of ice cream, you'll instantly be in cookie nirvana. The best part? Skillet cookies are really quite simple to make, and come in all the same varieties of normal, subpar cookies. We've put together our favorite 11 skillet cookie recipes -- after checking these out, you'll never look at a regular cookie the same way again.
