Rolo Cookies

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by Pismo

I'm not sure what these were originally called, but the recipe came from a Pillsbury Bakeoff cookbook. These are my favorite cookies and I get requests for them all the time. They are a chocolate cookie topped with sugar and pecans and when you bite into them you get a delicious caramel surprise!

I made these cookies a long time ago from the pillsbury recipe. The cookies were great and I really liked them. I think they were called turtle cookies? Over the course of time and events I had lost my recipe. I am so glad to find it again here! Thanks for posting!
