Lemon Lime Skillet Cookie

Feel like zesting up your life? This dessert is full of lemon and lime zest. And the best part about this dish is that you could eat it right out of the skillet if you were just cooking it for yourself or your family. I chose to take the dish to a dinner party, which made cutting it up and removing it from the skillet slightly difficult, but it is totally worth it.



Recipe adapted from here.

1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup butter
1 3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 tablespoon lemon zest (you’ll need about 3 lemons total)
1/2 tablespoon lime zest

1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tablespoon water, if necessary

Note: You’ll need about 3 lemons total, and  3 limes total.

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, mix the flour and baking powder, and set aside.

2. In your skillet, melt the butter over medium high heat. Add the brown sugar, and make sure to tilt the pan to coat all of the sides of the skillet.

4. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the top is golden brown and set.  While it is baking, prepare the glaze by mixing the ingredients. Wait to add the water to see if needed for the right consistency.


5. Remove the skillet from the oven. Once it has cooled a bit, drizzle the glaze on top.
