Root Beer Cookies

1 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. butter or margarine
1 egg
1/4 c. buttermilk
1 t. root beer concentrate
1 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt

Cream together brown sugar and butter. Add egg. Add buttermilk and root beer concentrate and mix well. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the root beer mixture and mix well. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet at least 2 inches apart. Bake at 350 degrees for 7-8 minutes. Remove to cooling rack and brush with glaze while cookies are still hot.

Root Beer Glaze:

2 c. powdered sugar
1/3 c. butter
1 1/2 t. root beer concentrate
2 T. hot water

Mix all ingredients together well. Brush on the tops of the hot cookies. Serve with vanilla ice cream.

When I lived in Utah I remember seeing this on ksl during lunch time. I haven't gotten around to making them until now. Whew! They were pretty good, but not something I'd make too often. The concentrate seemed a little strong.
