Victoria's Root Beer Chocolate Chip Cookies

Want a different kind of chocolate cookie? Try this new recipe I created last night that uses root beer!

I created these cookies last night because I wanted to make a different type of chocolate chip cookie. Rolling the cookie dough in sugar before baking really gives them something extra.


  • 2 1/4 Cups Unbleached Flour 
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda 
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1 Cup Softened Butter
  • 3/4 Cup Sugar
  • 3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 4 Tablespoons Root Beer Extract
  • 3 Eggs
  • 2 Cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips 



Preheat your oven to 350º F.  In a medium size bowl combine the flour, baking soda and salt.  Set aside.  In another medium size bowl beat the butter and sugars on medium speed for 3 minutes.  Add the vanilla and root beer extracts.  Add the eggs one at a time.  Mix on low for 2 minutes.  Gradually add the dry mixture into the wet mixture.  Stir in the chocolate chips.  Place in the fridge for 1 hour.  Remove from the fridge when you are ready to bake. Scoop by the tablespoon and roll into a bowl of sugar.  Drop onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.  Bake for 12 minutes or until done.  Makes approximately 4 dozen cookies.

Where do you find root beer extract?

Hi there! It is difficult to find, but you can order it from Amazon. Make sure to get the real stuff and not the imitation "flavoring." It does make a difference in taste.
