Root Beer Float Sandwich Cookies

We love root beer!  Root beer everything!  We’ve made Root Beer Float Popsicles, Root Beer Ice Cream, Root Beer Float Fudge, Root Beer Homemade Zotz Fizzy Candy and another version of Root Beer Float Cookies.  (All amazing!)  So when I saw these Root Beer Float Sandwich Cookies on Pinterest, what did I do???  Pinned it!

This recipe is wonderful.  The cookies are soft and chewy and the root beer flavor is amazing!  Alone they are perfect!
