The Texas sheet cake my mom served in her bakery was one of my favorite menu items. She served a whole lot of phenomenal food, but that thick cocoa cake and rich, fudgy icing got me every time.
When I came across this recipe for Texas sheet cake cookies a few months ago, I tucked it in my back pocket, knowing I’d pull it out again to use for just the right occasion. That occasion turned out to be a church baby shower a few weeks ago. These cookies were a hit; more than one person asked for the recipe.
It’s no wonder why they were so well-liked. The cookie is soft and light, with a touch of chocolate that isn’t too sweet. The real decadence is in the icing. It’s a rich mixture of powdered sugar, milk, cocoa powder and butter, melted together until it’s thick and shiny. Once the icing is spooned over the cookies and allowed to set, you’ve got a perfectly sweet, moist cookie with a smooth layer of fudge icing.

- 1 c. butter, room temperature
- 3/4 c. sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbs. vanilla extract
- 1 tbs. baking powder
- 1 tsp. salt
- 2 2/3 c. flour
- 1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
- 1 c. butter
- 1/4 c. cocoa powder
- 6 tbs. milk
- 5 c. powdered sugar
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Cream together butter and sugar until fluffy, about 3-5 minutes.
- Add eggs and vanilla and mix until incorporated.
- Add baking powder, salt, and flour and mix just until it comes together.
- Fold in melted chocolate until all of the dough is brown.
- Drop generous tablespoons of the dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 7-8 minutes, or until cookies have just lost their shine and are barely not jiggly.
- Allow cookies to cool on a cooling rack.
- While cookies cool, make the icing by combining the butter, cocoa powder, and milk in a saucepan over medium heat.
- When everything is combined and butter is melted, remove from heat and stir in powdered sugar. Spoon icing over cooled cookies until each cookie is completely covered.
- Allow icing to cool and set before eating.
