Texas Sheet Cake Cookies

I’m winding up my recipes for Christmas Day. I wanted to have something sweet around the house when my children come home so they think I’ve been productive.

I am whipping up these. I love Texas Sheet Cake, and now we can make that recipe into cookies. I love the internet.
