Red, White and Blue: An Independence Day Skookie

Independence Day Skookie skillet cookie Recipe

If you are getting together with friends and family for Independence Day, make a statement with a red, white and blue dessert. This freshly baked skillet cookie or “skookie” couldn’t be easier! Toppings are customizable but I love to go classic with vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup. For a little red and blue, add fresh strawberries and/or raspberries and blueberries.

We recently shot a recipe video for this Skookie in our Nestlé kitchens. Take a look! At the end of the shoot, this Skookie was gone within minutes!

COOL for 10 minutes (if you can wait that long!); serve topped with your favorite ice cream. For my kids, that means Dreyer’s Slow Churned Cookie Dough, as shown above. Sprinkle with berries; drizzle with Nesquik.
