I like pretty things

And cookies can be very pretty.

Have you ever discovered
a new cookie recipe
that just made you
These rootbeer cookies
did it for me.
Oh, the giddyness.

Rootbeer in the frosting, too.

These are so good
that they didn't
even make it to
the table.


Root Beer Cookies (from the ward cookbook!)
2 C brown sugar
1 C softened butter
2 eggs
1/2 C buttermilk (I used 1/2 C milk with 1 1/2 T lemon juice)
2 t root beer extract
3 1/2 C flour
1 t baking soda
1 t salt

Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs. Stir in buttermilk and root beer extract. Combine flour, baking soda and salt. Add to creamed mixture. Drop by teaspoons on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 6 - 8 minutes. Cool on rack.

Root Beer Frosting

2 C powdered sugar
1/3 C softened butter
1 1/2 t root beer extract
2 T hot water

Combine all ingredients. Frost cookies when cool.

You guys, you are really going to enjoy these.


  1. Cooking? Baking? What's that? Where do you find the time? I feed my family, but I don't think it's actually considered "cooking." More like "preparing" food. All easy stuff. You've inspired me to get in there and bake some cookies.

  2. I have totally forgotten all about these! An old roommate of mine used to make them and I love them! Now I'll have to make them sometime. Maybe sometime this summer! Thanks!

  3. You had me until the root beer part :)
