I love root beer floats. I grew up in a town that still has an old fashioned drive in root beer stand so we were used to getting a really good root beer float. I recently took my nephew there and enjoyed a delicious root beer float! Making memories, he still talks to me about that day getting root beer floats!So, I was craving one of those floats and decided to make those flavors into a cookie. So here it a recipe for root beer float cookies.
