I made these cookies with Pamela's All purpose gluten free flour. Out of 45 cookies baked on Friday, I have exactly 4 left on Tuesday. These are the most delicious cookies made with gluten free flour I have tasted yet. My family loved them as did my co-workers.

These cookies were amazing, especially when warm. I followed the recipe, with the exception of using butter instead of margarine. I found that I had to let the cookies cool at least 3 minutes before moving to the wire rack (it gave the caramel time to set) I will definitely be making these again! (updated) Several weeks later I needed a quick batch of cookies, so I followed the cookie recipe and used white chocolate chips instead of the rolo. I dropped the cookies by the spoonful on the cookie sheet and came out with another cookie that received rave reviews from the party.

One of my dad's friends made these for him a while ago. I was hoping these would be as good and it turnded out it was the same recipe! These are honestly one of the top three best cookies I have ever had. My dad absolutely loves these as well, and he doesn't even like chocolate much! I had no problem with the sweetness. They seemed to be as sweet as any average cookie to me, but I didn't roll them in sugar. I baked mine for 350 for 7-8 minutes for a softer, gooey cookie. My cookies may have been a little bigger, but I'm not positive but I think I only got about 36 cookies. I am making these a second time today. I know it's only been like two weeks since I made them last, but that's how good they are. I managed to revive some of my kindergarten counting skills and actually counted them this time- there were 44. So before I forgot how to count again I also counted the rolos in a bag ( do I need to get a life or what? ) so I thought I would let everyone know there are about 57 rolos in a 12 oz bag. Thank you sooo much!
