Root Beer Float Cookies-Bring back memories from childhood in a cookie!
If I had to choose one type of dessert as a favorite, it would be cookies. Cookies are easy to make and easy to eat. They can feed a crowd. They store well. They always look good. They always create a memory when eaten. Or a reminder of cookies gone by. Baked with love, still warm from the oven, with a glass of cold milk standing near by.
And the possibilities are endless! Most cookies have the same base ingredients. Butter/margarine/shortening, Sugar, Eggs, Flour, salt, Baking soda. What sets cookies apart from one another are the Flavorings added into the regular cookie base.
I grew up on McCormick Extracts. As far back as I can remember, my mom used them, my Grandma used them and I have always used them. Probably generations before that were using them. I might have a bit of a problem when it comes to how much I love their extracts.
(this is my stash of flavorings taken from my baking cabinet!)
McCormick is celebrating it’s 125th anniversary this year! They are the largest producer of extracts, not just in the US but globally! As you can see, I’ve always been a supporter!
Just a teaspoon of extract can change a vanilla cookie to an orange cookie or a chocolate cookie into a mint chocolate cookie.
McCormick’s Root Beer Concentrate, developed in 1889, caused the trending sensation of Root Beer floats and home Root Beer brewing in the early 1900′s. I never really thought about the history of some of the products I’ve always used, I just knew they were trusted brands, handed down from one generation to the next.
Invited to help McCormick celebrate their anniversary, I wanted to make something that took it all back to the beginning. Back when Willoughby McCormick was selling his products door to door. Their Root Beer Extract one of the first. Root Beer Float Cookies were the immediate answer. The great flavor combination of a root beer cookie and a vanilla filling, just like the famous drink.
