You did what to Root Beer?

Hey Now, Did you save me one!
The key to the cookies
I love cookies; they are the best food ever created. The other day I was surfing Pinterest, looking for a new cookie recipe. I came across one called Root Beer Cookies. I love root beer; it’s refreshing and goes well with ice cream. So when I saw this recipe I knew I had to make it. With house church coming up I decided that these cookies were needed, plus I would have a built in tasting panel to tell me what they think. These cookies were really easy to make and it only took 40 minutes tops. The hardest part of the recipe though was finding Root Beer Extract. Eventually I found the extract at Wallyworld. 

Have you ever had the grocery store sugar cookies with an inch of frosting on it, these cookies are similar to them but they taste like a root beer float.

On a side note, I haven't looked yet but I wonder what other extract flavors I could find because you could substitute that extract with the root beer extract and create that type of cookie.

Look at that layout, everything is in reach
Brown Sugar and Butter, two of my favorite things
The egg in the storm
Come on now, you know you want a beater to lick
This is the second best part of making cookies
This is the best part of making cookies...almost
just needs frosting
Here is the recipe from Pinterest; it comes from another blog called chef in training.
