When I stand before God at the end of my life,
I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say,
"I used everything You gave me."

Yummy Rootbeer Cookie Recipe!

When I was 16 years old, I spent the summer with my cousins in Utah. Looking back, my favorite things from that summer were when we would threaten to tattle to my Aunt Peggy (who had 5 children) and she would say she didn't want to hear it (I use this today with my own children) and these yummy, yummy, yummy rootbeer cookies.

My children have recently become rootbeer lovers like their Mom so I decided to dig out Aunt Peggy's recipe.

Rootbeer Cookies

1 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. butter (softened)
1 egg
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 c. buttermilk or water
1 tsp. rootbeer extract**
1-3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt

Mix as for any cookie and bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes

Rootbeer Glaze

2 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup butter softened
1-1/2 tsp rootbeer extract**
2 T. hot water

Glaze the cookies generously.


**I used to be able to get rootbeer extract at the grocery store. Now it is rootbeer concentrate which I don't think is as strong. So I ordered my extract from Cooks Vanilla online.

Enjoy the cookies!
