Merry Christmas! Thanks for hanging in here with me while I was away from the blog for a bit. We are all healthy now and ready to enjoy lots of holiday treats and parties. I am headed to a cookie exchange this weekend and I cannot wait to share these amazing Texas Sheet Cake Cookies. I LOVE Sheet cakes!
My mother-in-love makes the most amazing Texas Sheet Cake. When I saw that the recipe could be converted into a cookie, I knew that I had to share them with all my friends. I bet you wish you were attending this cookie party!
Let’s jump right into the fun. These are easy to make but do not, in any way, follow a traditional cookie recipe. I don’t know of any other cookies that are made like these. On that note, I don’t think there are any cookies that even come close to tasting like these either. (But please try them all and let me know your thoughts 😀)
