Chocolate Pecan Skillet Cookie

“Bake up the ultimate shareable cookie. For variety, replace the chocolate chips with an equal quantity of M&M’s or chocolate chunks. Or go super fancy by mixing the chocolate chips and pecans into the dough, then gently folding in 1-1/2 cups fresh raspberries.” —James Schend, Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin
