Root Beer Cookies

I know this may sound strange, but these are by far the best cookies I've ever made. A friend of mine gave me the recipe and I decided to try it out!

-3/4 cup butter
-3/4 brown sugar
-1/4 cup sugar
-1 small box instant vanilla pudding mix (dry, do not prepare)
-2 eggs
-1 tsp root beer extract
-2 1/4 cup flour
-1 tsp baking soda
-1 cup white chocolate chips

1. Cream butter and sugars together.
2. Beat in instant vanilla pudding mix well.
3. Add eggs and root beer extract and beat until well incorporated.
4. Add flour and baking soda and beat until well incorporated.
5. Sit in white chocolate chips
6. Roll into 1" balls and place on greased cookie sheet
7. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 8-10 minutes. **
** I modified this a little: I found that they weren't thoroughly cooked after 10 minutes, so I would flatten them with a fork and put them in for another 5 minutes **

Root beer extract: I've been told you can find some at Walmart, in the same section as the vanilla extract, but I went to Bulk Barn and found tiny bottles that were 1 tsp each, so it worked out perfectly! (Also, extract and concentrate are the same thing, so don't get discouraged if it says concentrate instead.)

These cookies are absolutely delicious and they aren't overly sweet, so you can just keep on eating! I was also really surprised that the taste of root beer isn't as dominant as you'd think. They mostly taste like vanilla with a slight root beer after taste. Yummy! :)


  1. uh yum definitely trying these

  2. I'm not a root beer fan, but I know tons of people who'd love me if I give this a try!!

  3. I'm not a huge root beer fan either, but I found them delicious! And I mean, everyone loves the person who brings goodies ;)
