Root Beer White Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies

Root Beer White Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies
     Here is yet another variation of my mom’s pudding chip cookies. This time, I used a generous amount of root beer extract in place of the vanilla extract. I also added white chocolate chips, which gives the cookies that rich creamy taste reminiscent of vanilla ice cream. My husband was a big fan of these, and brought a few dozen to school to share with his students. He reported that although some were hesitant at first to try a root beer cookie, those that were brave enough thoroughly enjoyed the treat.
