What is turbinado sugar?

It's the first result of sugar processing. Its crystals are still brown and large. Sugar in the Raw is a popular brand of this sugar. 

Do I Have to make this in a skillet?

No, it's cookie dough, make it into individual cookies. 

I don't have a 10-inch skillet, can I use a 12-inch skillet?

Yes, you can. However the cookie will be thinner. Also start checking the cookie for doneness after 20 minutes.
