These cookies are beautiful and delicious. They will break your heart. Or heal a broken heart. Good for both situations. Seriously.
I was at a liquidation-type store and saw a big bag of Mini Dark Rolos for $1 so I was inspired to use them in cookies. In an effort to be as healthy as possible, we made these with whole wheat flour. I think they tasted even better than white flour cookies. From now on we are probably going to use whole wheat flour in our cookies just because we like it so much. Of course, you can substitute white flour to your taste. Or get daring and do a combo of both!
