Who can resist a skillet cookie made with brown butter, oats and cinnamon, topped with vanilla ice cream and a homemade butterscotch sauce? Not me.
I first dreamed up this brown butter skillet cookie several years ago, fell head over heels in love, shared the recipe with you, and then forgot all about it as it got buried in my recipe archives. Such a shame! Because it really is dynamite incredible. So after stumbling across it agiain I decided to refresh my memory— and maybe yours too— and give the post a little face lift with updated photos and easier recipe instructions.
But I kept the basic recipe the same. The cookie is still flavored with lots of brown butter and brown sugar, gets a little heartiness from rolled oats, and has a nice warm autumn-y feel thanks to its cinnamon sugar topping. I left the butterscotch sauce alone, because it didn’t need any improvement (it’s the bomb), and a scoop of vanilla ice cream ties the whole thing together.
And just like that I’ve fallen all over in love again.
