Rolly Pollies

My cookie recipe got featured on Instructables, and they gave me a one year pro-membership for free! yay!
Rolly Pollies are the best cookies you will ever taste this side of heaven.  These are addictive cookies that melt in your mouth.  They are soft and chewy with a molasses taste that has a perfectly synergistic caramel and chocolate Rolo candy melted in the middle.  This recipe will yield 25 cookies.

Step 1 Ingredients


3/4 cup shortening (solid shortening in a can works best, not the stick kind)
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup molasses
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
Rolo candy, about 25 pieces

Mix the following in a small bowl:

3 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 Tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

After baking, sprinkle with:
Sanding sugar

Step 2 Mix the Dough

Press thumb into dough ball to make an impression, then insert one Rolo candy into the indentation you just created.  Push the dough up and over the candy to cover it completely.  Smooth out the dough ball, then press the top of the dough ball into topping mixture. 

Step 4 Bake

Place the dough ball, with sugar side up, on a greased baking sheet.  Bake in an oven pre-heated to 350 degrees for 12 minutes.  If you are using a warm cookie tray, the cookie baking time will be shortened to about 10 minutes.  The cookies should be lightly baked with slight cracking.  Sprinkle with sanding sugar.

Step 5 Enjoy
