Texas Sheet Cake Cookies

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
  • 1 whole large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, optional
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour*
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate, melted


  • *Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. In an electric mixer cream together butter and sugar until well combined and creamy. Add in egg and vanilla extract and beat until everything is fully incorporated.
  3. Mix in cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and flour until it forms a batter. Pour in melted chocolate and stir until well combined.
  4. Scoop 18 balls of dough and place onto a lined baking sheet. Bake for 8 minutes or until cookies are just dry on top. Be careful not to overbake.
  5. Remove tray from oven and leave cookies on baking tray to cool completely.
  6. Once cookies are completely cool prepare icing. In a saucepan melt butter. Add remaining ingredients, whisking until smooth and pourable. If mixture is too thick add more milk 1 teaspoon at a time to get to a pourable consistency.
  7. Pour frosting over cooled cookies on baking tray. Let cookies sit for a couple of hours for icing to completely set.
  8. Remove and store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

These cookies turned out AMAZINGLY DELCIOUS! So chocolatey good! I used a 1-1/2 Tablespoon scoop and got 20 cookies. Recipe is easy to follow - would love to see measures in weight. This recipe is a keeper and will be added to our bakehouse menu. Thank you for sharing!
