Texas Sheet Cake Cookies Recipe

For the Cookies

1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 and 1/3 cup flour
1/2 cup chocolate chips, melted
For the Icing

1/2 cup butter
2 Tablespoon cocoa powder
3 Tablespoon milk
2 and 1/2 cups powdered sugar

For the Cookies

Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit
Line baking sheet with parchment or silicone mat, set aside. In a large bowl beat butter and sugar together until light, about 2 minutes. Add egg and vanilla and continue mixing until incorporated. In a separate bowl, mix together baking powder, salt and flour. Slowly add dry ingredients to butter mixture and mix on low until just combined.

In a microwave safe bowl heat chocolate chips on high in 30 second increments until melted, stirring after every 30 seconds.

Add melted chocolate directly to bowl of cookie dough and mix until combined. Scoop out dough in Tablespoon-sized mounds, roll into ball, and place on baking sheet. Bake for 7 minutes. They will still be very soft on the inside. Do not overbake!
Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

For the Icing
Add butter, cocoa powder and milk to medium saucepan and heat over medium heat, whisking until melted together. Remove saucepan from heat and whisk in powdered sugar.
Pour icing over cookies. Allow icing to set before serving (this will take an hour or two).

I lost my recipe for Applesauce cake. It was made with Crisco and I think I used 6 tablespoons of Crisco for the recipe also it contains raisons and nuts. It is frosted with a icing made with Crisco and sugar after making milk and flour base. If anyone has this recipe I would really appreciate if they would post it to the list.
Thanks, Barbara

Hi Nancy
I was wondering if anyone had a simple recipe to use up some cream cheese. I was looking for a main meal rather than a dessert. Thank You

I just had to take a minute to write and tell you how wonderful I think your recipe letter is! I am a very new member, just got my first email letter a couple of days ago and loved it. There is so much information and recipes in it, that I know it will take me all day just to read thru it and visit all the places that are mentioned.

It reads like a family newsletter and that makes it even more special. I plan on sending my sisters the info for this, I know they will want to join too.

Thank you so much for spending your time doing this for everyone, its the best down home recipe site that I have ever seen.

I am looking for a broccoli cheese soup similar to the one from Quizmo's. Anyone out there in Nancy land have one to share?
