rootbeer float cookies

not nutritious in the least but trust me, you'll get over it.

this recipe is from 101 gourmet cookies.  i picked up the book at costco a few weeks ago and so far i've made wendy's peanut butter cookies (yum) and these root beer float cookies.  both divine!  (note to you:  the dough has to sit in the fridge for a bit so, plan ahead ~ learn from my mistake!)

root beer float cookies
source: 101 gourmet cookies cookbook by wendy paul
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup milk
2 eggs
2 tbsp root beer flavoring or extract (currently ON SALE at harmons!)
4 cups flour
pinch of salt
1 tsp baking soda

cream glaze
2-3 tbsp heavy whipping cream
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla

cream together sugars and butter until light and fluffy.  add milk, eggs, and root beer extract.  stir to combine.  add dry ingredients and mix until combined.

refrigerate dough for one hour until firm then roll into 1" balls.  place on a lightly greased cookie sheet.

bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.  remove from oven and cool completely. 

frost with glaze.

glaze: whisk all ingredients until all lumps are gone.

we don't need the nutritional info on these, right?  ignorance truly is bliss as long as you plan on running an extra two miles the next day.

Ok, I made them! I liked them best still warm from the oven. Yum! Unique! And a must try for root beer lovers out there. I am going to post them on The Sisters Cafe on 2/17, I think. Thanks for the fun recipe!
