Can I make a skillet cookie without an oven?
You can make the skillet in an airfryer! We personally recommend using an oven, since this reduces the chances of the middle of the cookie getting cooked and the cookie as a whole getting cooked all the way through. However, an airfryer works just fine if you are without an oven.
How do you store keto pizookies?
Before you store leftover pizookies, make sure it doesn’t have ice cream on it. You can avoid this by only scooping ice cream on a corner of the pizookie if you're not that hungry. If your skillet cookie hasn’t been touched by ice cream, you can store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days.
How do you reheat keto pizookies?
You can reheat keto pizookies by putting it into the microwave or oven! However, the best way to have it is after baking the recipe, of course. We recommend cutting into smaller pieces beforehand, then microwaving in thirty second intervals until it is fully warm. If you microwave too large of a piece, the edges can change consistency from being cooked for too long while the middle stays cold.
