Root Beer Float Cookies

If you like root beer and cookies then here is the recipe for you. They look like chocolate cookies.. but not they are root beer flavor.
I found this recipe and went to the market and was able to find the extract.
Well, I wanted to make it again and no luck finding the extract in any of the markets around here. 

Well, a friend of mine lives in the Baltimore area, which is where the McCormick headquarters is located. He sent me the extract that I needed and Boom, cookies.
Amazing flavor. So, if you can find the root beer extract give these cookies a try!
