What is it about the simple deliciousness of snickerdoodles? Snickerdoodles = childhood.

A caramel center is the perfect remix to this classic cookie. And Rolo’s are just the way to do it. This is the littlest effort ever required for a quite fanciful cookie. Promise.

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

Rachel Schultz January 10, 2013 at 11:50 pm

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! :(

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 December 13, 2012 at 4:39 pm

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!

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 December 11, 2012 at 12:59 am

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!

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!

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!

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.

Great tip. Thanks!

Jody November 22, 2012 at 5:19 am

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.

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

A November 21, 2012 at 6:48 pm

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.

Reply

Rachel Schultz November 30, 2012 at 12:28 am

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

Jeretta Hall November 13, 2012 at 5:46 pm

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!

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

Reply

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

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!

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!

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.

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!!!

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.

Reply

Anonymous July 24, 2012 at 9:16 pm

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.

Reply

Rachel Schultz July 24, 2012 at 9:34 pm

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!)

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

Reply

Anonymous September 6, 2012 at 5:36 pm

@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.

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. :-)

Reply

Christi September 8, 2012 at 9:42 pm

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.
