Rolo Cookies (holiday baking #5!)

My 5th holiday baking post and final one! Have you checked out my previous ones?

These have been a tradition every year at Christmas time, because they are just so tasty.

I’m telling you, as soon as you start making these at Christmas (or any time of the year) it will become a crowd favourite!
