Rollo Cookies

 

I love all things baking, really I love the smell of things baking in the house. It brings back such a feeling of nostalgia that sometimes I’ll heat up a little bit of cinnamon in a pot of water just to get the smell of baking though the house. Both of my grandmothers and my mother were and are avid bakers, that when I was a child I had no idea of what a store bought cake, cookie, cupcake or pie tasted like.  I had the originals, the homemade, it made me very popular around fundraising season.  Rollo cookies are always a big hit, They are just what they sound like, a chocolate cookie wrapped around a Rollo candy and baked. They turn out to be the best chocolate cookie with a caramel surprise on the inside! YUM!

Recipe:

1 bag of rollo’s – defoiled
2.5 cups of flour
.75 cups of unsweetened cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) butter softened
2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs

Preheat oven to 375, mix the flour, cocoa, and baking soda in a bowl. Combine the sugar, brown sugar and butter in a mixer until well blended, add eggs one at a time until mixed in, add vanilla. Slowly add flour mixture until all combined. Now you’re ready for the fun part.

the key to really good rollo cookies is to make sure they’re sealed in tight, if not you have what we call a “blow out” and it can be messy at best:

Bake for 7-10 minutes and let cool on sheet for 5-10 minutes then transfer to cooling rack to let cool completely.

I hope you enjoy these cookies as much as my family does and remember – hot caramel is like liquid napalm – be very careful with the cookies until they are fully cooled!
