I followed the "very low heat" instructions and ended up with something more than half raw, that had to be shock-heated to be edible (my crowd was waiting). It qualifies as weeknight dessert. Thank you for the recipe.

I just looked at the sample of the cookbook on Amazon, and each of the five recipes I saw called for a 10-inch skillet. That’s what I would try.

Turbinado sugar and ground walnuts. Absolutely melt in your mouth perfection.

Same question. Because too large a pan and you'll get a burnt thin chip, too small and it's a puddingy mess.
