When I first saw these cookies, I fell in love! My youngest son loves root beer floats! So, of course we had to try them. The stores in our area don’t carry root beer extract so I ended up ordering it online from “The Soda Pop Shop”. Hopefully you will have better luck finding it near you. The extract came with directions on making homemade root beer too! I feel there might be a new project in our kitchen soon! I’ve never tried making soda before. It might be fun! Anyway, back to the cookies. We made them this morning and they are sweet, but so good! Pairing them up with some vanilla ice cream for AMAZING ice cream sandwiches will make them even better! Enjoy!
