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 .
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 !
