Would make this again.
I read the comments and wondered why they said the dough was messy. This is the first time I made them and they look fantastic and it was so easy to handle the dough when making them. Thank you for the recipe. 5 stars

After reading some of the comments, thought I'd drop a hint. I've made these 2-3 times now and find that if you put the dough around each Rollo just to cover, you'll get more cookies. Yes, they flatten out but I've never had any that were messy. I do freeze or refrigerate my dough before making the cookies, however. The first year I made them, everyone raved over these cookies! 5 stars

Would not make this again.
I followed this recipe to a tee. These cookies were too sticky. It was easy to work with the dough after putting it in the fridge over night. But after baking the cookies went flat...real flat. I had to throw the whole thing away and look for a new recipe. 1 star

Would make this again.
Super Messy and sticky, did add vanilla and milk as someone else suggested, taste wonderful, but next time I'll let someone else make them... 3 stars
