      What a fun cookie! I halved the recipe and still ended up with alot! I served these at my ladies Bible study group and they were devoured in no time! Everyone loved the fact that they were so different for the ordinary. The cookies held their "drop" shape while they baked, so if you are planning to ice them I would recommend rolling them into balls and flattening slightly. However these cookies are super even without the added icing! Thanks for sharing this fun treat!

      These cookies are very good. Soft and chewy the way a good cookie should be.:) The only thing I would say is to make a double batch of the frosting. One batch did not quite cover all and with double you can put on a little extra. Very yummy.

      What a delicious, unexpected flavor! Zatarains makes root beer extract and sells it online for much less than other vendors, so I ordered some for this recipe and am I ever glad I did! Mine ended up crisp, but as Pamela said they do hold their drop shape unless you flatten them out... we enjoyed them as is. I actually tripled the frosting recipe in order to cover all of the cookies, and boy are they delicious. I can't wait to share them with others and get their reaction... the flavor is such a wonderful surprise! Thanks so much for this outstanding recipe!!! Dianne
