This cookie is packed with brown sugar and all that warm richness that you’d find in caramel, and there’s something about a fresh-picked apple that is just incomparable. So if you make this skillet cookie, do it the day after you go apple picking. That way, you can check "pick apples" and "autumn baking" off your fall bucket list … and maybe also "eat an entire cookie by myself."
