Texas Sheet Cake Cookies

Cookies and Cups, Vera's Recipes

Do you love Texas Sheet Cake? Maybe you will say that I’m becoming boring but I simply adore it! I know, first I got you to know my version of this beautiful cake, after that, I told you about the beautiful recipe from Lady Behind The Curtain, and now the same story again!

You will surely say “Oh no, Vera, that’s enough now. It’s about time you did something new”. But, wait just a minute. This is not your usual Texas Sheet Cake, but a version of it in the shape of beautiful cookies. Yes, believe it or not, those are Texas Sheet Cake Cookies .

Texas Sheet Cake Cookies

Everything began when Shelly from the blog Cookie and Cups decided to make her favorite cake into a cookies version. Of course, a great recipe like that could not stay unseen in the eyes of a chocoholic like me :). And when it was time for the cookies in my kitchen, it was already known which version will spread the smell from my oven – Texas Sheet Cake Cookies ofcourse . And if you are wondering what taste do cookies topped with the classic poured chocolate icing have, the only thing I could say is: divine.

And if you don’t believe me, you can ask my choosy son Marco, for whom it is always difficult to accept something new in his repertoire of sweets. But this time, he was munching the chocolate cookies one after another! Well, I don’t know what Marco himself would tell you because he rarely says anything except “mommy” or “daddy”, but maybe the pictures on the post will tell you more then all of us together !

  1. I love Texas Sheet Cake and can’t wait to make these!! I make a different version of the sheet cake called, Mexican Chocolate Cake. It’s pretty much the same, but I like my version of the cake better than the Texas cake….and so do my friends. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Today is my FOURTH time to bake these cookies! My mom, my son, my friends, my son’s friends and even my husband LOVE them. Perfection 🙂

  3. Hi,
    I love Texas sheet cake and I tried your cookies yesterday to take to a church family day event. My cake recipe is made with buttermilk and cinnamon so I just add to add a tsp of cinnamon to your recipe! It was awesome and everyone of the cookies was gone from a table FULL of lots of desserts!
    Thanks, I know I’ll use it again!

  4. Hi! These look super yummy. I pinned it last week and today I’m adding the ingredients to my shopping list. The measurement for 1/2 melted baking chocolate is hard to understand. . . usually, recipes call for a certain number of oz. of the chocolate and then you melt it. Can you help a newbie out?

    1. Hi Juliann,I’m glad you asked, my mistake but I just corrected the recipe.It’s 3 oz. baking chocolate or 1/2 cup chocolate chips

  5. I have not tried this recipe yet, but it sounds just FABULOUS! Wondering if these could be frozen for a couple of weeks…like for an early Christmas cookie exchange?

  6. Just veganized them with vegan marg and replaced the egg. The icing isn’t even on them yet and we’re devouring them! Omg!

  7. These are amazing!! I made them tonight and they were a huge hit! Definitely on my go-to list from now on! Thank you for sharing! 🙂

  8. I’m going to try these but will add cinnamon to the cookie and chopped pecans to the icing (the Texas Sheet cake recipe I have uses cinnamon and pecans along with buttermilk). They look awesome —

  9. These are the BEST cookies!!! My husband says that they are the best cookies that I’ve ever made. I double the batch every time I make them….which still isn’t enough. I never have leftovers. 🙂 So good!! ♡ Thank you for sharing such a good recipe! ♡

  10. Great cookie recipe – very yummy! Mine flattened out more than yours, but were still tasty. On the second batch I chilled the dough for about 30 minutes before baking and it was much better. Thanks!

  11. I tried to access this page several times but it is so ad-ridden it is impossible to navigate. Took eight retries just to get this comment to you. Made me sad.
