Awesome Rolo Cookies
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter (softened or melted) or marg
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 ½ cups all purpose flour
¾ cup unsweetened cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
48 Rolo’s 5 or 6 packs
The secret to these cookies turning out well is to make sure the dough is completely chilled and stiff before wrapping the rolo!
Add sugar and melted butter in a large bowl. Beat until fluffy. Then add eggs and vanilla and blend well. In a smaller bowl add flour, cocoa and baking soda, mix well, then add to the sugar mixture and blend well. Stir in ½ cup of pecans then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 30 min to and hour.
With a floured hand take roughly 1 tablespoon of dough and wrap it completely around one rolo. Then press one pecan onto each cookie. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 7-10 min (until slightly cracked) cool 2 min and then remove from cookie sheet.
