Rolo Cookies

Well look its another Sunday and I'm posting again. This must mean I have lots and lots of time on Sunday! Well I do, well more than any other day usually. Another end to the weekend. Maybe I'm depressed and find comfort in blog postings so this is why I always post on Sundays. Who knows. I once again had this Saturday off and found lots to do around the house. We successfully got the basement stairwell painted so that was a welcome accomplishment. The basement is finally starting to look like a basement. The family room is almost done and it will be onto the bathroom. The bathroom scares me. We are going to attempt to tile the shower and floor. Sometimes there are things that you should hire professionals for. This might be one of them I fear. Just because Jason is a carpenter sometimes he thinks he should be able to do everything. I may have shared this with you once or twice before. Luckily for me he usually comes out on the winning side so lets hope once again this is the case or I might be asking for you to come help us! The recipe I am going to share with you is Jason and Hallie Jo's favorite. My niece absolutely LOVES these cookies. I first made them at Christmas time under Jason's begging. It's the typical Peanut Butter Blossom cookie but instead of a star or a kiss they are topped with a Rolo. Hallie takes them by the handfuls. She literally begs for me to make them. The best part is she's not really a sweet lover so they must be delicious! Enjoy!
