Root Beer Cookie Sandwiches | Cookies and Cups

I do love cookies.

I think even more than cake or cupcakes or brownies or blondies or…

ok, maybe not more than blondies.  They are my favorite…

But over the course of this blog I have decided that while one cookie is good, two cookies are better.

Especially when they are sandwiched together with a butter based filling.

And I feel like I’ve done you dirty a little bit, not making enough sandwich cookies.  Sorry ’bout that.

Let’s rectify that situation today with Root Beer Cookie Sandwiches.

Also, let’s never say rectify again.

Think you don’t like Root Beer?  Don’t be a hater… you do, you just don’t know it yet.

Make these, I promise you’ll like them.

And if you want to take them to the next level, forget the filling, and use ice cream.  Dude, Root Beer FLOAT Cookie Sandwiches.

These cookies start with this Root Beer Concentrate

I found mine at WalMart.

Cookie dough balls on a baking mat

Make a simple batter and form it into ball shapes to bake.
That way they will be more evenly shaped for sandwiching…
There’s nothing worse than unevenly sized tops and bottoms.
Well, actually there are a lot of things worse, I mean, like malaria…

But you get me, right? No one wants a pear shaped cookie sandwich.
While your cookies are cooling, make your filling.

  1. I just made the Root Beer Cookie Sandwiches are they are DELICIOUS! I love eating just the cookies when they come out of the oven. They are soooooo yummy! My husband loves the completed sandwiches with sweet filling. I made them as Valentines gifts and I love seeing the reaction to root beer flavor. So unexpected and scrumptious. Good job!!!

    I am wondering if you meant to put 1 TBSP of milk for the frosting? I am making these and 1 tsp make really thick dark frosting. I added enough to make 1 TBSP and it was fluffy and light colored.

    I need a cookie sandwich…or three…in my life right now. What do you think the cookie to stress ratio is? Probably like one cookie can over write, like, an over due library book and that’s it. I’ll probably need at least two dozen, if that’s the case.

    These sound incredible! Maybe just the ticket to soothe my frayed nerves…

  4. I made these last night and they are SO good! I double the recipe and brought half in to work. They were gone by lunch time! Due to my daughter’s milk allergy, I used unsweetened almond milk for the icing and it was still delicious!

  5. Made these tonight with my sister for a potluck tomorrow. Not sure if they are going to make it to the lunch! Seriously, these are AMAZING! We couldn’t stop eating the batter or the frosting. Yum! Thanks for another perfect recipe!
