Sheet cakes are like the ultimate comfort food.  They are also like a blank canvas because the possibilities are endless.  Turning them into a cookie makes them even more appealing or at least I think so.

The best thing about a cake mix cookie is that they are so simple to make.  Follow my top 7 Tips for Cake Mix Cookie Success and they are even better.

There really aren’t enough great things to say about these Celebration Texas Sheet Cake Cookies.  Let me walk you through the simple steps.

Steps for Making a Texas Sheet Cake Cookie

1. Empty the dry cake mix into a medium sized bowl and whisk or sift the mixture.  This will eliminate any lumps before we add the wet ingredients.

2.  Add the wet ingredients and stir until combined.  I like to use a hand held mixer for this step but you can totally do this by hand.  I added some sour cream to this recipe just for an extra flavor and softness.

3.  Scoop the dough out onto a parchment or Silicone lined baking sheet.  Using a cookie scoop is really ideal for this step.  Making sure that all of the cookies are the same size helps them bake up evenly.

4.  Remove baked cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for at least 10 minutes.  The most important thing to remember is to NOT over bake.  

I know I say this all of the time but truly, the difference between a beautiful soft cookie and a brown blob is only a couple of minutes.  Take them out a little earlier than you think you need to and then let them cool and set up on the cookie sheet.  It works…I promise!

5.  Make the cooked frosting.  This frosting is really so simple to pull together and only takes a couple of minutes.  Some butter, milk, powdered sugar and vanilla extract is all you need.  Heat, whisk and pour.

6.  Spoon the cooked frosting onto the cookies and spread out with the back of a spoon.  When you are adding sprinkles to the top of the cookie you only want to work on one at a time.  Otherwise, the frosting will set before you add the sprinkles and they won’t stick.

7.  Enjoy!  This my friends is the most important part.  Not to mention my favorite.  Store Celebration Texas Sheet Cake Cookies in an air tight container for up to 3 days.

They are pretty magical but add sprinkles to about anything and watch the magic happen.  Sprinkles are awesome like that which is exactly why we use them to celebrate fun occasions.  Although I have to admit that a random Monday night seems like a good enough reason to me.
