  2. Sift flour, salt and baking soda and set aside.
  3. In mixer cream butter and sugars until light and creamy. Add eggs and beat till light and fluffy. Now beat in root beer extract and butter milk.
  4. Stir in flour mixture, when completely blended add vanilla chips.
  5. Using a 1" cookie scoop, scoop dough onto parchment lined cookie sheets about 3" apart. Bake at 350 for 10 to 12 minutes till golden brown around the edges. Cool on cooling rack.
  6. In microwave safe dish melt vanilla almond bark or vanilla a'peels till creamy smooth. I only microwave them for 30 seconds at a time. Add root beer extract and pour into disposable decorating bag or use a zip lock freezer bag. Cut to a small opening and drizzle over the top of cooled cookies. This will take about 10 to 15 minutes to set up. Now enjoy!
