Skillet Cookies: Press cookie dough into well-greased mini 6-inch cast iron skillets, filling about half way. Bake cookies at 350 degrees Ffor 10-15 minutes. Remove from oven and press burnt end pieces into the cookies and continue baking for 2 minutes, or until edges are slightly browned. To test the doneness, insert a wooden pick into the cookie and see if it removed cleanly.
