Tuesday Treats: Butterscotch Texas Sheet Cake

There’s a character in FIGHTING FOR ELENA who is very important but who doesn’t appear very often. In fact, her presence only occurs in the occasional “whispered” comment she makes to Pops. “Who’s that?” you ask. That would be the ghost of Rosie West, Pops first wife and his “One”–at least until he meets Elena. Pops and Rosie never had kids of their own but they raised a whole passel of other people’s kids. And Rosie was a “milk and cookies” kind of mom born and bred in Texas. Oh, she made them eat their vegetables, but they always got dessert. The following is a favorite of Pops AND the kids.

  1. I loved this! And I loved the little mental drop-ins from Rosie. So much awesomeness.

    This recipe sounds super yummy. And super sugary-sweet. And super bad for me. Of course, I’m not adverse to any of that. LOL Thanks for sharing!

      You’re welcome! And the nice thing is, little pieces go a long way! And the Cool Whip, butterscotch and almonds makes it almost like ice cream. 😉

      And thanks. Rosie just popped in and started talking and I knew I had to include her. 😀
