my kitchen is my laboratory
Reblogged from fritesandfries
I do a lot of experimental baking on the weekends, and these sandwich cookies happen to be one of them. I wanted to emulate the flavors of a root beer float so this happened.
The cookies are root beer flavored and the frosting is plain old vanilla buttercream but you should definitely use vanilla ice cream when it gets a little bit warmer.
With the root beer cookies, I used root beer and root beer extract — the root beer alone didn’t give it enough flavor. I was really hesitant about the amount of root beer extract to use because that stuff can taste kind of funny and artificial. If you don’t have or have access to root beer extract, don’t be afraid to omit it completely or use a bit of vanilla extract instead.
