These cookies were inspired by the Butterbeer drink in the Harry Potter books and movies. I added the French vanilla drizzle on top to represent the foam at the top of the drink. I think these would also be good using a butter pecan cake mix. However, due to allergies we have in our home, I opted for the butter cake mix. Take note that the flavor in the icing drizzle is from liquid coffee creamer. You can change the flavor according to what creamer you use. The sky is the limit!

With one bite of these delicious cookies, you will feel like you are taking flight on your Firebolt broomstick. They are buttery and sweet and we love the creamy vanilla drizzle. These really do taste like you're sipping a butterbeer in Diagon Alley. Yum!
