These cookies are amazing! I saw the recipe and bought the root beer concentrate. On yet another cold, snowy day my daughter and grandson came over and we decided to make something ‘summery’ to enjoy. WOW! They made the house smell wonderful and they do taste exactly like a root beer float. These take some time to make but they are certainly worth it. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
