Recipe adapted from Dessert Now, Dinner Later – all photos are hers!

What You'll Need

For the root beer cookies:
1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks), room temperature
2 cups light brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp McCormick Root Beer Concentrate
3¼ cup flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
For the vanilla buttercream:
1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks), room temperature
2 cups light brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp McCormick Root Beer Concentrate
3¼ cup flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Add eggs and root beer concentrate; mix well. In another bowl, combine flour, salt, and baking soda. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating all the while, until fully combined.
2. Use a teaspoon to scoop rounded balls of dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 12-13 minutes, or until edges are set.
3. Meanwhile, make the buttercream frosting: using an electric mixer, beat together coconut oil and butter until smooth. Add milk, vanilla, and about half of the powdered sugar. Mix well, then add remaining powdered sugar, and mix until combined.
4. To assemble cookies, pipe icing onto the bottom cookie, then top with another cookie. Store in an airtight container.
Enjoy these beautiful treats! :D
