Texas Sheetcake Cookies

I was flipping through my photo editing software this week and saw some photos I took of Texas Sheetcake Cookies I made for our Super Bowl Dinner Party this past year. And I had every intention of posting the cookies right after but for some reason (reason = life) I never did. But, HOLY CRAP does the world need this recipe. I honestly can’t even stand how delicious these cookies are.

They came to be because while I love-love-love a good slice of texas sheet cake, because it makes so much I either (a) end up eating it all or (b) end up throwing half of it away. Neither choice is a good idea for this gal. These cookies solved my problem! I can happily nosh away at a handful and then I can package some up and deliver to friends to save our waistlines and our garbage can 🙂

And since getting my little pup my cravings for chocolate have skyrocketed! I suppose lack of sleep and being trapped inside my house for a week will do that? Regardless, I’m happy to give you this recipe today because it’s damn delicious.
