Soft Baked Skillet Oatmeal Cookies

You get two soft baked skillet oatmeal cookies to share! 

Baked in two 6 inch skillet pans.  Topped with an easy frosting and of course…Sprinkles!  How could you go wrong with a big, soft baked cookie?  A perfect dessert to share with your special someone, for date night.  Or… you and some good friends could grab a few spoons and dig in.  I was lucky enough to share with my 5 year old little guy.   We topped ours with some ice cream.  It was delicious!  

Here they are without any frosting.  They look great without it, too.
