Rolo Filled Snickerdoodles are cinnamon sugar cookies filled with chocolate covered caramel Rolos. These cookies will fly off the baking sheet!
Starting today on RH we’re bringing you 12 days of cookies. There are so many great recipes that I know you’re going to just LOVE!!! I decided to start with these Rolo Filled Snickerdoodles because I just couldn’t wait. First, let me tell you these snickerdoodle cookies are HUGE!!! These are the size of a cookie from the mall. You can absolutely cut the size of these cookies with Rolos in half and make more with one batch of dough, just be sure to reduce your cooking time to about 8 to 10 minutes. This time of year I like to make loads and loads of different cookie dough on the weekends and then refrigerate or freeze it till I’m ready to bake it off. At the top of my list are stuffed cookies. They’re a favorite at my house, especially these Peppermint Patty Stuffed Chocolate Crinkle Cookies and cookies made with Rolos.

What is it about a snickerdoodle that we love so much? I think it’s the cakey texture coated with cinnamon sugar. I love to eat them straight out of the oven but then again I love to do that will all cookies. 🙂 This time of year it seems like I make cookies to go with every fun thing we do. We just got our Christmas tree yesterday and we’re going to be decorating it tonight, so of course, I have to make a few different types of cookies for us to snack on while we drink our eggnog, watch Christmas movies, and decorate. Christmas is my all-time favorite holiday. It’s so much more fun with the kids too. It’s like getting to relive my childhood Christmases again. My heart is so full this time of year!
I couldn’t keep enough of these rolo cookies on hand. Every time a batch came out of the oven they were gone within a day or two. They’ve become our friends’ favorite cookie on our Christmas cookie plates and with good reason. But these cookies aren’t just for Christmas. They’re fabulous any time of year, or any occasion…even if the occasion is you needing these cookies in your tummy.
Be sure to come back each day so you don’t miss any of these great cookie ideas!

Tools used to make this Rolo Filled Snickerdoodles recipe
Stand Mixer: I don’t know what I’d do without my stand mixer. I use it for just about everything…and I mean everything! Cakes, cookies, mashed potatoes, and shredding chicken!
Mixing Bowl: These mixing bowls get used just about every day at my house. The grip handle makes them easy to hold and the pour spout makes them perfect for batters!
Baking Sheet: A nice big baking sheet is a must have for any kitchen. This half pan sheet is large than a regular cookie and works great for anything you’re baking.
Silicone Mat: I use a silicone mat on my baking sheet practically everytime I bake. The mat makes for easy cleanup and my foods don’t stick to the pan.
