Root Beer Pudding Cookies
Each year, especially around the holidays, I like to try new cookie recipes. Some recipes are ones that I invent on my own, or with my mom, and others are ones I find by searching the web. With thanks so Pinterest, I have no problem finding tasty looking recipes. The real test is creating the recipes and making sure they past the taste test.
I needed to bring a plate of cookies to scouts this week, and to a church activity, so I decided to try something kind of different. I came across this recipe for Root Beer Pudding Cookies, from Chef In Training, and they sounded and looked delicious. When recreating certain flavors, you never know how it is going to turn out. Well let me tell ya, these Root Beer Pudding Cookies definitely taste like root beer, but not in an overpowering kind of way. They are moist and absolutely delicious. The white chocolate chips paired with the sweet root beer flavor, is the perfect combination! It made me want to add some vanilla ice cream!!
