Root Beer Float Cookies

What are some of your families favorite summer activities? We love all kinds of water sports, dirt bike riding, bicycle riding and hiking. The list goes on and on.

If you are a lover of Root Beer then these soft moist pudding cookies are for you! They are literally a Root Beer Float in a cookie! #Root Beer Float Cookies #Cookie Recipe

During the summer our all time favorite is…….sleeping in! Our school mornings start at 5:30am, so sleeping in until 7:30am or even 8am is a real treat!

I’ve had no problem shifting from our  structured school routine to our “let’s have some summer fun” routine.

Another favorite summer activity is eating yummy homemade treats like these Root Beer Float Cookies. This was my first experience using pudding mix in a cookie recipe.

Nikkie from Chef in Training is a big fan of pudding cookies so I decided to give her recipe a try. Now I know why she likes them so much, they are amazing! Crunchy on the outside, moist and chewy on the inside, full of  Root Beer flavor. The white chocolate chips give these cookies that rich vanilla ice cream taste…..cookie heaven! It’s summer, make a batch of these cookies, put your feet up and enjoy a few because…..

  1. Where do you get root beer concentrate? I never heard of it. I want to try these.

    • Hi Teri!

      Walmart carries it in the baking section by the vanilla, you can also purchase it on Amazon. I also recommend calling around to your local grocery stores to ask if they carry it and have some in stock. You will love the cookies! Thanks for following us, Tracy
