Gluten Free Rootbeer Float Cookies

Wow!!  It has been a long time since I have blogged, I'm sorry!!  Life has been crazy at our house and finding time to bake or try new recipes to post hasn't really happened.   I have a lot of recipes I have found on pinterest that I want to try.  
Here is one of them:  Rootbeer Float Cookies - of course with a few minor tweaks to make them gluten free.  I found the original recipe here.  

Cookie Ingredients:
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 cup buttermilk
1 tsp. root beer extract or concentrate
4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt

Frosting Ingredients:
4 cups powdered sugar (or icing sugar)
3/4 cup butter, softened
3 Tbsp. milk
1 tsp. root beer extract or concentrate

Directions:  Preheat oven to 375º.

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and brown sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in buttermilk and root beer extract. 
Combine dry ingredients; gradually add to creamed mixture. 

Drop by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375º for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool. 

In a mixing bowl, combine all frosting ingredients. Beat until smooth. 
Frost cooled cookies.
