Cherry-Chocolate Skillet Cookie
- Canola oil for greasing pan
- 8 maraschino cherries without stems
- 1/3 cup (75 mL) slivered almonds
- 6 tbsp (90 mL) butter (3/4 stick)
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) water
- 1 2/3 cups (400 mL) white cake mix from a regular-size package or 1 small pkg (9 oz) white cake mix
- 1/4 cup (50 mL) quick oats
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) brown sugar
- 1/2 cup (125 mL) semi-sweet or white chocolate morsels
Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Brush Executive (8-in./20-cm) Sauté Pan (do not use Stainless Cookware) with oil using Chef’s Silicone Basting Brush. Firmly pat cherries dry with paper towels. Cut cherries in half; set aside. Process almonds in Manual Food Processor until coarsely chopped.
Place butter and water in Classic Batter Bowl. Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH about 1 minute or until butter is melted. Using Mini Measure-All® Cup, measure cake mix and oats; add to batter bowl. Add almonds and brown sugar; mix with Small Mix ’N Scraper® until soft dough forms.
Place cherry halves, cut-side down, over bottom of pan. Place dough over cherries; press down firmly with bottom of Mini Measure-All® Cup to even out dough. (Dough should be even and smooth.) Bake 18-20 minutes or until cookie is light golden brown.
Meanwhile, place chocolate morsels in (1-cup/250-mL) Prep Bowl. Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH 45-60 seconds or until melted, stirring after 30 seconds.
Pour chocolate into small resealable plastic bag (see Cook’s Tips). Trim a small corner off the bag; drizzle chocolate over cookie. Using Utility Knife, cut into wedges.
