Rolo Pretzel Cookie Recipe

This weekend I made these amazing Rolo cookies after I was asked to bake for our new families at our school. We are having back to school night tomorrow and they welcome all the new families with a basket filled with cookies and treats. I think it is really a nice touch.

I made these cookies in a few hours. The most time-consuming aspect is the refrigeration time. You form the cookies, place them in the fridge and a few hours or days later you can bake them off in 10 minutes.

They were really simple and I was able to make a few extra for the family.  I really liked that the recipe made 4 dozen cookies, that is a great amount to give away, and keep some yourself.
