“I got this recipe from my neighbour Bonnie who brought them to a cookie exchange. Needless to say they were a big hit with the kids (big and small). Having the Rolo in the center gives it a wonderful surprise when biting into it. Keep the Rolo's in the freezer until ready to use as it improves the texture of the cookie. One of the few cookies my DS likes. Prep time includes the 1 hour to chill dough.”
40 cookies
