Root Beer Float Cookies

I love finding new and interesting products on Amazon. One night I was looking through the different extracts that are out there and I came across ROOT BEER! 

Immediately my dad popped into my head, he loves root beer floats. I knew I had to order it so I could create a Root beer float cookie for him!

These cookies are soft, sweet and creamy with a buttery glaze drizzled over the top giving you that familiar root beer flavor! These cookies go great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a cold glass of milk! 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon root beer extract (found it on Amazon)
  • 1 ¾ cups all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt

The glaze:

  • 2 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • 5 tablespoons of melted butter
  • 1 ½ teaspoon root beer extract
  • 2 tablespoons hot water

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. 

Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper. 

In a bowl, mix together brown sugar, egg, milk and root beer extract. 

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt. 

Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients bowl, whisking to combine. I add a cup at a time.

Drop the dough by teaspoons 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet. You can use a small cookie scoop or spoon. 

Bake cookies for 9-11 minutes. 

Cool completely before adding the glaze. 

For the glaze

Mix together all of the glaze ingredients in a small bowl. 

Stir until well combined. 

Using a fork, drizzle the glaze over the top of the cooled cookies. 

*if glaze is too thick, add another tablespoon of hot water, until you get the consistency you desire.
