I love the holidays and I love holiday goodies. Especially the Holiday cookies! But I don’t always have the time to make things from scratch. So I like to try making things the easy way. Like these easy Rolo Snickerdoodle cookies!
So what do you do when you have deadlines to meet, boys to run to scouts, another boy to run to orchestra practice, a baby who wants mommy’s attention and a 7-year-old who just wants to bake cookies with mommy?
You do quick Betty Crocker Cookies to get it done!
I love these Betty Crocker Cookie mixes! They turn cookie baking into something so easy that even a frazzled Mom who is extra busy can get it done!
Because we always have to make time for doing fun things with the kids.

Last year I used the Sugar Cookie mix to create Raspberry Filled cookie cups. And oh goodness, they were Heavenly! And definitely made my Holiday baking easy!
For this baking season, I want to show you just how insanely easy it is to make gourmet Rolo snickerdoodle cookies in half the time!
First follow the directions on the back of the Betty Crocker Snickerdoodles cookie mix.
This way you have your snickerdoodle cookie dough in half the time.
Combine the cookie mix, butter, egg and water into the mixer.
Set aside the Cinnamon Sugar.
Beat the cookie mix ingredients until you have a soft dough.
Unwrap the Rolos.
Now using a cookie scoop, portion out the cookie dough. Be sure to use a SMALL cookie scoop. I used a regular one and my snickerdoodles to Rolo ratio was way off. You need a SMALL cookie scoop!!
Put a Rolo in the center of the cookie dough and form a ball around the Rolo.
Did you know cookies bake better and roll better when they are cold? For easier time making cookies, put the prepared cookie batter into the fridge for about 20 minutes before portioning out onto the cookie sheets. For Snickerdoodles this is actually a crucial step.
Roll the dough in the cinnamon sugar until it is evenly coated.
Bake 8-10 minutes for regular size or 9-11 minutes for large cookies. You don’t want to overbake. So watch them carefully.
Allow to cool on the cookie sheet a minimum of 1 minute before removing. If you don’t they will crumble and fall apart.
Remove from cookie sheet and enjoy!
As you can see, my cookies came out large. So don’t let your eyes deceive you! A small cookie scoop is actually what you need to use. You don’t need a lot of cookie dough to cover that Rolo! And they will turn out much better with a smaller amount of dough to Rolo ratio.
But, even with too much cookie dough to Rolo ratio – our Rolo snickerdoodles still tasted amazing!
You can store any leftovers in an air-tight container for about a week, if they happen to miraculously last that long.
