Since Shannon started the stuffed cookie theme around here, I’ve been dreaming of these – Rolo Cookies! Since winning the Pillsbury Bake-Off in 1990, the Rolo Cookie recipe has been shared from friend to friend. So, now I’m sharing my version with you! Enjoy!
|2 ½ cups flour||1 cup butter|
|¾ cup unsweetened cocoa||2 eggs|
|1 teaspoon baking soda||2 teaspoons vanilla|
|1 cup granulated sugar||1/2 cup granulated sugar|
|1 cup brown sugar||1/2 cup white chocolate discs|
Sift together flour cocoa and soda; set aside. Beat sugars and butter until well blended; add eggs and vanilla. Add dry mixture and blend well. Shape cookies into small balls. (I used a 1/2-inch cookie scoop.)
Press Rolo into center and cover with dough. Roll cookies in granulated sugar. Bake on ungreased cookie sheets at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes, until tops of cookies are slightly cracked. Cool on racks. Melt the white chocolate in a plastic bag for 30-second blasts in the microwave until smooth. Cut a corner of the bag and drizzle over cookies.
Makes about 4 dozen cookies.

p.s. I may or may not have “Win the Pillsbury Bake-Off” on my bucket list. More “stuffed” goodness to come next week!
