    SHOULD I USE TWO MINI ROLOS? THANKS! I’M SO EXCITED TO TRY THESE!

    • Rachel Schultz

      Yes, I think that would work well.

    I followed instructions and mine came out delish… Only thing is the center of mine does not look like picture. It is hard not gooey as shown. Maybe my oven is hotter? Or maybe they harden after cooling no matter what and picture is right out of oven? Either way they r relish.

    I rolled candy in flour as comments suggested.

    Made mistake of sprraying olive oil on baking sheet bc I didn’t have parchment paper and saw many comments about sticking to pan. I don’t know what got into me doing that! It made cookies a little greasy! :(

  • Christy

    I am making these in a mini muffin tin. So they turn out like a cookie cup. They are for a Christmas cookie exchange. I am rolling them in colored sugar too!

  • Sheena

    I did these last night… I may have made them too big? My cookies came out very fluffy and not flat… So more cookie than rolo. Should I just use less dough? I used your snicker doodle recipe. Thanks!!! They did turn out delish tho!

    • Rachel Schultz

      Try using 1 teaspoon cream of tartar!

  • im definitely trying these for a church Christmas party this sunday! (and i find it weird that so many people asked about what snickerdoodles are!)

  • Kristin

    YUMMY!!! I listened to Christmas music and made these and they are DELISH! I read most of the comments first and heeded the advice about rolling the rolos in flour first. I also sprayed the cookie sheet to avoid sticking and put them upside down on the cooling rack. I’m bringing some to work tomorrow for my Secret Santa! THANKS!

    • Rachel Schultz

      You’re welcome. Those are all great tips.

  • Michelle

    I just finished making these cookies. I was expecting them to stick like some of the reviews mentioned but they came off the cookie sheet easily. I rolled these cookies in cinnamon and sugar. These were super easy and yummy. Thank you!!!

    • Rachel Schultz

      You’re welcome, Michelle!

  • Danna

    Oh my! I made these for our office and everyone wanted the recipe!! I did dust the rolos with flour as suggested. I also placed the cookies UPSIDE down on a cooling rack so all that caramel goodness didn’t drip out. I went out and bought MORE Rolos today to make another batch!

    • Rachel Schultz

      Great to hear!

  • Oh dear Lord! I think I just died and went to heaven! Amazing idea – Thanks Rachel!

    Trisha Xx

  • Has anyone ever tried making these with the jumbo rolo’s? If so how big did you make them and how did they turn out? I couldn’t find regular or mini rolo’s.

  • Savy

    how long do you bake them for?

    • Anonymous

      14 minutes. It says that up there between two pictures.

  • Candace

    Made these tonight using your snickerdoodle recipe. They were amazing! The dough was way better than store bought and so easy to make. I lined my cookie sheet with parchment paper and had no issues with sticking. My son has just about devoured half the batch! Thanks for such a great recipe!

    • Rachel Schultz

      Great to hear! You’re welcome..

    A tip I learned for chocolate chip cookies worked well for this recipe too. Coat the rolos in a light dusting of flour. This will help keep the rolos “afloat” as the cookies bake. Also make sure that you use wax paper on the cookie sheet, and change it after each time.

    • Rachel Schultz

      Great tip. Thanks!

  • Jody

    Ok made these tonight and had to throw the first batch away because they were stuck to the paper!! Ugh! Second batch done with no paper and came out better. We added pecans to the top of the cookie to add a little something extra.

    • Rachel Schultz

      Great idea! Kind of like a turtle… I may try this.

  • A

    Am I the only one who could not get these suckers off the baking sheet? Followed every step just the way that is listed and I ended up with cookies that would not come off the sheet. The ones that did look like I decided to sit on them for a bit. Don’t get me wrong they taste wonderful but they look like they were the first cookies I have ever tried to make.

    • Rachel Schultz

      Try coating the rolos in flour. It will prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the cookie and sticking to the pan!

  • Ruth

    My M-I-L Makes these but she uses mini snickers for snicker snicker doodles lol

    • Rachel Schultz

      Haha! Well that makes sense :)

  • Jeretta Hall

    Oh my goodness, these look amazing! And super easy! I just have one question. In other recipes, they all froze the rolos before baking. Did you have to freeze them? It would be a great time saver if I could just unwrap them and get to baking! Thanks!

    • Rachel Schultz

      Nope! And this is the original :)

    Made these tonight, OMG they are so good! And the easiest cookie that I have ever made. This is the Snickerdoodle recipe that I used. http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/snickerdoodles/7ffc92a9-d847-4869-9ecb-99de3b751b14

    • Penny C.

      If you use the cookie recipe that I used, you will need a 12 ounce bag of Rolos.

      • Penny C.

        P.S.
        A small melon baller works great to make sure that you get the correct amount of cookie dough.

  • Becky

    Hi i know this is leading away from the main thing- a snickerdoodle but i have no idea what one is and live in the uk so dont know if i can even buy them here! Could you do this recipe with normal biscuit mixture?? Thanks xx

  • emma turner

    WILL BE TRYING THIS VERY SOON .

  • parker

    tried these with 1/2 a reisen candy in each – also delicious!!

  • Amy

    FYI pillsbury has instructions on their website on how to turn their sugar cookie dough into snickerdoodles. I followed their recipe, added the rolos, and they turned out great.

    • Rachel Schultz

      so helpful. thank you

    Any suggestions as to stores that carry snickerdoodle cookie dough? I’d love to find it!

    • deborah shivers

      I bet if you used the mini cupcake pan they would turn out really great …I use it for my peanut butter cookie with the hershey kiss …yum

      • Rachel Schultz

        love it!

        Has anybody tried this in a mini cupcake pan? How did they do? Any adjustments needed for the recipe?

    • Rachel Schultz

      I think Kroger does!

      Just buy plain sugar cookie dough, and sprinkle cinnamon on it..that is all a snickerdoodle is..

    • Pat

      Giant does!

  • Anonymous

    Thanks for the great and easy recipe! I rolled mine in extra cinnamon and sugar and they are delish! I also made a second batch with peanut butter cookie dough. They turned out very good too.

  • meli

    i couldn’t find snickerdoodle dough so i bought the regular sugar cookie dough and they turned out amazing. thank you for the yummy idea. i hope you don’t mind i linked you on my fb. :)

  • Nichole

    I made these but they turned out crispy and all the rolos pretty much oozed out so they stuck to the pan. I did use non stick spray but they still stuck :( I used mini rolos but I’m guessing maybe I didn’t have enough dough around them. Any suggestions? Btw, the couple that did turn out ok were tasty!

  • now I’m craving rolos hehe :)

  • Anonymous

    Making these now using the snickerdoodle recipe posted (meant to add vanilla but forgot) but with Milk Duds instead of Rolos. Hoping they turn out!

  • Lizz

    Being Scottish, I too didn’t know what a snicker doodle was. But reading through your remarks and comments, and the kind lady who gave the recipe for snicker doodles, I am definitely going to try these out! If they are as delicious as they sound, I will be giving them as home baked gifts!

  • Anonymous

    My husband thinks you are brilliant!

    • I laughed pretty heartily at this :) I blushed and it brightened my day. Haha. I even read it out loud to David.

    Made these for a gathering yesterday. Used the mini Rollos & Peanut butter cups (makes more, smaller cookies–and no unwrapping) and used sugar cookie dough since it was all that was available. They were a big hit. We couldn’t come to an agreement over which one was better–so that’s a good sign!

  • Crysty Cornett

    Great tips. Thanks for
    Inspiring others ~

  • Karla

    I couldn’t wait to make these- my husband loves Rolo’s. I didn’t find Snickerdoodle dough so I uses chocolate chip dough! It was yummy!!! Thanks for the idea

  • Have you tried freezing them? This is a great idea! Thank you!

    • I’ve never tried it, but if you do, please let me know how it works out!

    I used sugar cookie dough… deeeelish!!

  • What a nice surprise in the middle! These look fantastic!! :)

  • Debi

    These were so easy and so delicious! I used sugar cookies as my store was out of snickerdoodles. I also rolled mine in sugar before baking them and they were a huge hit with my family! Thank you for sharing!

    • Great idea to roll in sugar. Happy to hear the family loved it.

      love,

  • Lynn

    Mu son said these were the best cookies. This coming from a 14 year old.

  • joanne

    could you use mini reeses peanut butter cups instead of rolos

  • Maggie Cuthill

    So relieved i’m not the only one that didn’t know what Snickerdoodles were.Was thinking i’d had a deprived childhood :) until l saw the comments.Thanks so much for the recipe,can’t wait to try it on the grandkids yummmmmy .

    • Not deprived! Probably just healthier : ) Hope they go over well with the grandkids!

    I just bought the miniature rollos already unwrapped at Target. One ingredient that makes the Snickerdoodle recipe different than a sugar cookie rolled in cinammon sugar is the Cream of Tartar in the dough.

    • Great suggestion! I may just have to try it :) Thanks for reading.

      Love,
      Rach

  • Kayla Adonetti

    Making these now!! Smells so good :))

  • I refrigerate my (any) homemade dough for a few hours, roll the cookie into a ball, cook 25′ lower and for a few minutes less – they continue to cook when they come out of the oven… they are still golden brown, but always thicker and chewier… works awesome with cocunut macaroons and all sorts of chocolate chip cookies!!!

  • Anonymous

    The new mini Rolos make this even easier because you don’t have to unwrap them.

  • Michelle

    What receipe do you use for homemade snickerdoodles? My mom has a receipe that tastes great but the cookies always harden too much when they cool.

    • Anonymous

      Try adding a tsp of cornstarch. Ive started using it in my chocolate chip cookie recipe and it leaves my cookies a lot fluffier and softer! O, and undercook the cookies by like 1 min. That helps keep them softer.

    • I used a store-bought dough and it stayed quite soft. I’ll put my radar up for a good recipe, though. Thanks for asking this question, I’ve been meaning to find one.

        I come from the heart of Amish country, and this Amish Snickerdoodle recipe is my favorite!

        1 c. butter, softened
        1 1/2 c. sugar
        2 eggs
        2 3/4 cups flour
        2 tsp. cream of tartar
        1 tsp. baking soda
        1/2 tsp. salt
        Sugar & cinnamon to roll dough

        Cream shortening & sugar. Add eggs and beat well. Sift together flour, cream of tartar, soda and salt. Gradually stir into creamed mixture. Chill dough 2 hours or more (note: I rarely chill the dough!). Form into balls the size of large walnuts. Roll each ball into a mixture of sugar & cinnamon. (The recipe doesn’t list specific amounts of this… just blend it together to suit your own taste.)
        Bake at 400 for about 10 minutes. (Don’t bake them too long or they get too crunch… a good snickerdoodle is nice and soft!)

        • Great recipe! The Amish have perfected many things. Thanks so much for reading and your comment.

          Love,
          Rach

        • Rita

          They came out great.Thanks for the recipe.

          • Wonderful! So glad you liked them. Thanks for reading.

            love,

        • Amy Manship

          I am confused because the recipe called for butter but you said Cream shortening & sugar. Which one to use butter or shortening?

        • Anonymous

          @Amy, this Amish recipe is almost identical to the one from the 1963 Betty Crocker “Cooky Book,” which calls for “1 cup shortening (part butter or margarine),” though I prefer my cookies with all butter.

        • Anonymous

          That is exactly the recipe I’ve used for years except I add 2 teaspoons of vanilla. My family loves these!!

    • Anonymous

      Another tip to keep them soft is to put them in an airtight container, cover them with a peice of waxed paper and put a slice of bread on top, then cover with the lid. I do this all the time. The bread will harden, but the cookies will stay soft. :-)

    • The recipe I use for snickerdoodles just comes from a Betty Crocker cookbook, and they stay nice and soft. But I do cook for the minimum time or even a minute less, as the previous post mentioned.

  • These look so good and easy!

  • Could you use sugar cookies? Because my son is allergic to cinnamon and can’t have it in the house.

  • Caroline

    What is snickerdoodle? Is that a type of cookie dough?

    • Yes, snickerdoodle is a type of cookie, it’s a fairly simple dough that is rolled in cinnamon and sugar before being baked. So soft and SO good!

    • Yes, snickerdoodle is like a sugar cookie, rolled in cinnamon and sugar. Thanks for your comment.

      Love,

  • What are snickerdoodles?

    • Snickerdoodles are much like a sugar cookie that has been rolled in cinnamon and sugar. Very yummy!

  • Of course not! I appreciate it so much!
