A recipe video regarding the tasty treat that is the Texas Sheet Cake – made into a cookie – was posted on the 12 Tomatoes Facebook account and caused quite a stir (in more ways than one)! The video entails the seemingly innocent process of making the cookies, complete with all of the recipe details. And that’s when the great debate began.
With over two million views and 21,000 comments (most of which discussed the tasty “stir” that this video created), the discussion on many of the page’s Facebook comments seemed to center around what specific ingredients, in fact, made it a true Texas Sheet Cake recipe. Ultimately, any number of families could have any number of recipes for the original concept, and if you Google “Texas Sheet Cake,” you’ll find more than three pages of direct recipe links. They range from low-fat, to white, to chocolate, vanilla, and even red, white, and blue! The point that some seemed to be missing was just how tasty this cookie recipe by 12 Tomatoes appeared to be, and how easy they made it look to quickly whip up a batch!
