Root Beer Cookie Sandwiches

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.

Right?

I found mine at WalMart.

Make a simple batter and form it into ball shapes to bake.
That way they will be more evenly shaped for sandwiching…

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.

It’s really yummy.

  1. I love root beer. I used to get strange looks in high school when I drank a bottle of Henry Weinhard’s root beer in the cafeteria. My British husband can’t comprehend it, though. I guess that means I’ll have to eat these all by myself.

  2. Yeah… I’d go with cookies every time. The thing is that I’ve used to never be the biggest root beer fan… well, I’ve actually grown to like it a bit more these last few years. So, I’m totally into giving these a try.

  3. I was one of those girls who used to chase down the Popsicle man for a root beer Popsicle at every opportunity. I now live less than a mile away from a micro brewery that makes the best danged root beer I’ve ever consumed. I know what’s going into MY mixer this weekend! YUM!

    That looks lovely – sort of like a whoopie pie? Or is it more crispy? Root bear concentrate is going on my list for the next time I visit America!

  5. A lady in my church makes root beer cookies, but not sandwiches! Your Homemade Nutter Butters are my other favorite sandwich cookie you make, super yummy! I’ve made them a few times they’re always a hit! I’m sure these rootbeer cookies will be too. I’ll take them to church and sit them next to hers….I’m a “one upper!” 😉

  6. WOW! I love a great root beer cookie/cupcake. I made the cupcake version a few years ago…Still working on a boozy version, of course. 🙂 This is truly kind of cookie sandwich! Happy Memorial Day!!

    P.S. Your late night snack cookies freeze wonderfully well. 🙂

  7. So these totally made me think of the “David after Dentist” video because I hear him saying “is this real life” when I read this and imagine these cookies! I love root beer and sandwich cookies so these are genius Shelly!! Like pure and simple genius!!
