Root beer is my favorite pop! Maybe it is because I have so many childhood memories of enjoying frothy ice cold root beer floats during a family game night or after a summer day spent playing in the sun. So when I saw this recipe for Root Beer Float Cookies, I just had to try them! They are small cake-like cookies. Fun and different, and a must try for those root beer lovers out there.

3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter, room temperature
1/4 cup milk
2 Tablespoons root beer concentrate or extract
4 cups flour
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
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 one inch balls. Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet (or use a silpat like I did). Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool completely before applying glaze.
2-3 Tablespoons heavy whipping cream
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
Whisk all ingredients until all lumps are gone.
