Can’t get enough of ice cream sundaes this summer? Looking for an extra-yummy way to celebrate the 4th of July this year?

Try a freshly baked pan cookie or “skookie.” Toppings are customizable but we love to go classic with vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup. The recipe makes 16 servings, perfect for pot lucks and backyard barbeques.
