Dr. Pepper Thumbprint Cookies

>> Sunday, 24 January 2010

I'll admit it. I love Dr. Pepper. I enjoy pop in general, but there is something about Dr. Pepper that sets me all alight. After scouring the internet for cookies that possibly may be able to incorporate my love of Dr. Pepper, I found this recipe. I was excited, intrigued and fascinated.

Would these cookies live up to my expectation of Dr. Peppery goodness?


In fact it's safe to say that I can't even make out the teeny tiniest hint of the Dr. in these cookies.
However, they were delicious, so I will forgive them and instead drink a Dr. Pepper WITH them. That counts!

I hope you all had a good weekend! Be sure to head over to

Oh....and I promise, next week...no cookies! :)

They really were nice and soft and yummy...just not Dr. Pepper-y.*LOL*
I need to find something that tastes like Dr. Pepper. Hmmmm. Similar thing happened when I made root beer cake.
