That something is a giant 'pan cookie' or 'skillet cookie', which essentially offers a supersized take on your favourite gooey cookie recipe and is made in a cast iron, flat-bottomed pan.
You could use any oven-safe dish as an alternative, but the benefit of using in a heavy, cast iron skillet is that it helps give a crisp and buttery crust without losing that soft, oozy centre.
Skillet cookies are still baked in the oven like ordinary cookies but have the benefit of being one big, soft serving which is perfect to share - and comes with minimal clean-up, too.
We've seen giant cookie creations laden with toppings like Pretzels, chopped walnuts, dollops of peanut butter and generous scoops of vanilla ice cream. Mmm!
Food blogger and home cook Ana Guisbell, who shares foodie content under the Insta handle @inspiredwithatwist, has created a skillet cookie creation with an extra kick of espresso - and it looks divine.
Ana says: "The flavour of espresso and melted chunks of dark chocolate make this warm, gooey chocolate chip skillet cookie perfect for sharing."
Fancy making it yourself? Skip the baking sheets, grab your skillet and follow the recipe below.
