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.
Pepper made Rolo Cookies yesterday! This is my 250th post, in celebration of that, and Christmas, I thought I would share my recipe with you.....It's always a hit, and theres still time left to make them for the holidays! If you have any doubts, remember I didn't get this big without a little help from my friends! Great Recipe I promise!!!
Today Pepper found the sunglass attachment to my glasses....they're magnetized and tend to cling to my keys, often getting dropped in odd spots without my knowledge. Today she found them on a chair.....they've been missing a week. Now my fridge freezer isn't working again....if it isn't one thing, it's another.....go figure! I am ecstatic about my sunglasses....as I often drive the kids....sleepy eyes hidden behind them!
