To be honest, we don’t drink a lot of carbonated drinks around here . . . in fact, my kids call carbonated drinks “spicy drinks”. Ha ha! But every once in a while, I just get such a strong craving for Root Beer.
I came across these cookies and knew that I had to try them. They are super soft and moist and the frosting on top is what makes the cookie! It doesn’t use actual soda pop, but instead uses just a little bit of Root Beer extract (or concentrate) and it adds the perfect amount of root beer flavor.
If you love Root Beer, you will love these cookies!
