This Is The Best Way To Reheat Skillet Cookies

If you are someone who follows food trends, then chances are you've seen skillet cookies cropping up all over food blogs and social media. The extra-large cookies are perfect for serving a crowd, and after all, almost everyone loves chocolate chip cookies. But once you've made the skillet-sized dessert, you might be lucky enough to have leftovers. Should that be the case, then you certainly would not want to throw it out. Instead, you can store and save the leftover cookie for another day.

Be sure to store the cookie properly by placing the leftovers in an airtight container, according to Gimme Yummy. If the leftover chocolate chip skillet cookie is kept in a sealed container, then it should stay good for about two weeks. When you are ready to enjoy the leftovers, there are two ways you can reheat it.

The first option is to use the oven. According to Gimme Yummy, you can place the cookie back in the skillet and warm it up in an oven set to 330 degrees Fahrenheit. Use aluminum foil to cover the leftover cookie in the skillet and let it heat for roughly five minutes. However, using the oven might dry out your cookie, according to Thrillist. So, there's another option you may want to consider.

Reheat your skillet cookie in the microwave

Though you can certainly use the oven and your skillet to reheat the leftover skillet cookie, there's a simpler and easier way to reheat it. The best way is to use the microwave (via Mommy's Home Cooking). Just place the leftover cookie on a plate that is safe to go in the microwave and heat it for 10 to 20 seconds (via Cooking Classy).

Cooking Classy also instructs you to heat the cooking using the high-power setting on your microwave. According to Thrillist, you might want to place a mug of water in the microwave alongside the cookies to help keep them moist.

Once it comes out of the microwave and is deliciously warm and ooey-gooey again, you are set to indulge. It's sure to be as much of a hit dessert the second time around as it was the first. So, don't toss your leftover skillet cookie and plan to make the most of it another day.
