Rootbeer Cookies!

This is a recipe from my good friend Rachel and these cookies are awesome! They would be super delicious with some vanilla ice cream!
2 cups Brown Sugar
1 cup Crisco
2 Eggs

*Cream together the ingredients above, then add the following:

1/4 cup Buttermilk
2 teaspoons Root beer Extract
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
3 1/2 cups Flour

*Refrigerate for 1 hour. Then roll into balls and bake at 400 degrees for 5-7 minutes.

Glaze: Dip the cookies upside down while they're still warm. This time I made mine a bit thicker, like frosting, and frosted the cookies.

2 cups Powdered Sugar
1/3 cup Butter
1 1/2 teaspoons Root beer Extract
2 teaspoons Hot Water (more of less depending on the consistency you want)
