When I first started thinking about WHAT to make for this crazy, crazy as in awesome, week of #Choctoberfest I could not get Texas Sheet Cake out of my head. Why? I guess I wanted a chance to make something I’d never eaten before and that not everyone else would be making. I wanted new and different to eat and to share for #Choctoberfest, I found what I was looking for in Texas Sheet Cake Cookies.
I’d only ever made a Texas Sheet Cake once but I swear it was the most chocolaty chocolate thing I’d ever made. And I didn’t even get to eat any of it, I was simply handed a recipe and asked if I could make it for a luncheon. I did and I drooled over it but because it would look funny to deliver a “sheet” cake with a piece cut out of it, I stayed out of it. When #Choctoberfest with Imperial Sugar came along I knew it was the perfect opportunity to make that recipe again, except by this time I’d lost the recipe, no worries there, off to the Internet I went.
There are roughly a gazillion recipes for Texas Sheet Cake, I looked at all of them but once you’ve seen a half a gazillion you’ve seen them all. One recipe by Cookies and Cupcakes caught my eye though because it made 24 cookies instead of an entire cake and that seemed a smart way to make lunch box treats for kids AND get ooey gooey Texas Sheet Cake in one fell swoop. So I settled on the Texas Sheet Cake Cookies and got to work gathering ingredients, luckily our awesome #Choctoberfest sponsor Imperial Sugar sent me plenty of sugar to work with.
