    Root Beer Float Cookies

    1 cup packed brown sugar
    1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/3 cup finely crushed root beer flavored hard candies (about 10 candies)
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
    2 eggs

    Root Beer Glaze:
    1 cup powdered sugar
    4-5 teaspoons root beer or milk
    Additional finely crushed root beer flavored decorative candies (optional)

    Heat oven to 350. Grease cookie sheet with shortening. Beat brown sugar and butter in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, or mix with a spoon. Stir in remaining ingredients except Root Beer glaze items and additional candies. Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until almost no indentation remains when touched in center and edges are golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely, about 20 minutes. In a small bowl, mix glaze ingredients with spoon until smooth and thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle glaze over cookies. Sprinkle with additional crushed candies if desired. Makes 48 cookies.
