Root Beer Cookies

3 years ago my hubby swore of soda. He did it on a bet with a friend and now he says he continues because it makes him awesome. Before this life change his favorite soda was Root Beer. He got it everywhere we went and he was very particular with his brands. When I saw this recipe for Root Beer cookies I knew I HAD to make them for him. I admit he was super skeptical when I told him about them. I almost had to physically force him to take a bite-- but after 1 taste he was hooked. I had to send the rest of the cookies to his coworkers so they would be out of our reach. They were so yummy! Something different and fun that anyone can enjoy. *I used light brown sugar which made my cookies turn out super light- almost looked like a sugar cookie. SO yummy, but if you want them darker use dark brown sugar.

Root Beer Cookies

2 cups brown sugar
2 tsp. root beer extract
2 sticks butter- softened
3 1/2 cups flour
2 eggs
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup water
1 tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cream brown sugar and butter. Add eggs, water and root beer extract. Mix. In a separate bowl combine all dry ingredients. Stir dry ingredients into wet mixture until well mixed. Dough is a little sticky. Drop by teaspoon onto a cookie sheet. Bake 7-10 minutes. Makes 75 cookies.

1 cookie = 3 points (points plus)
