Root Beer Cookies

I have been wanting to make root beer cookies for such a long time and finally I made them!! My local cake shop was always out of root beer extract so I didn’t want to make any cookies until I had root beer extract.

Have you seen the video?

Who would have thought adding soda to cookies would make them taste AMAZING!!  If you are a fan of cookies, this is definitely a must try because these cookies were soft and chewy and it actually reminded me of Mrs. Fields Cookies!  You only need 6 tablespoons so just purchase the small bottle, I purchased 1 liter of root beer and now it’s sitting on my table.  My family and I don’t drink soda, so I’m going to have to bring it to work or school.
