Root Beer Cookies!

I just got the Taste of Home cookie cookbook.
It's filled with 499 cookie and bar recipes!!

I've let each of the kids drool over each page and pick a cookie they would like to help me bake.
Worker #3 picked Root Beer cookies!
Watch for more cookies soon!

They are soft and tender.
Full of Root Beer flavor.
A nice cookie!
Root Beer Cookies
6 doz cookies

1 cup butter, softened
2 cups brown sugar, packed (I used dark brown)
2 eggs
1 cup buttermilk
3/4 teaspoon root beer concentrate or extract (I used 1 teaspoon concentrate) If My tiny country grocery store had this, I bet yours does too! in the spice isle, right beside the other extracts.
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans. (I was out of nuts so I left em out)

Frosting (I doubled this)
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3/4 cup butter, softened
2 tablespoons water
1 1/2 teaspoons root beer concentrate or extract

  1. cream butter and brown sugar together until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Beat in Buttermilk & root beer concentrate. Combine flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture, stir in nuts.
  2. Drop by rounded tablespoons 3" apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Bake at 375 degrees f. for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. remove to wire racks to cool.

  1. How am I supoosed to stick to my diet when I have to make these? My son is in heaven, just from the photo and description!

  2. Oh yay I'm so glad you did this cookie! I love the Taste of Home Cookie Book and was wondering how a rootbeer cookie would be.

  3. All I can say is God bless you for doubling the frosting. :o)

  4. Wow, this is a must-try. I love root beer and aside from marinading pork in it, I have not found too many other outlets for it. And look at you with the two-blog thing - I like it! I'll be adding this feed to my Google Reader now... Bonnie

  5. Thank you! Rootbeer is my husband's favorite soda, so I'm sure he will love these. Thanks
    much for sharing the recipe!

  6. I am going to try these tomorrow. Wow how cool!
    My men will love these!

  7. I love Rootbeer!!! OH MY! I made a rootbeer cake once and it was so moist and delicious...I may have to give these a try next!

  8. My son is SO ONBOARD WITH THESE COOKIES. He can't wait for me to try them! I do a similar thing with my three kids and the cookie picking. One of them gets a turn every week to pick the cookie. Essentially, during the school year, they're supposed to be for lunch boxes but they rarely last the week. I also love it when I have to go buy a new, quirky ingredient that I've never used before. Hello root beer extract . . .
    Thanks for sharing!
