115g unsalted butter (softned- I find ten seconds in the microwave does the trick)
115g light brown soft sugar, although caster sugar works fine
1 large egg
225g plain flour
Half a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
12-16 Rolos depending on what size tin you use
Preheat your oven to 170c (make it 160 for a fan oven) and lightly grease either a 16 hole mini muffin tin or 12 hole standard bun tin.
Put the butter and sugar in to a mixing bowl and beat until light and fluffy. Mix in the egg then add the flour and bicarbonate of soda.
Using your hands roll small handfuls of dough in to balls and place a ball in to each of the baking tin holes. If the mixture is too crumbly then a splash of milk helps, it’s too sticky then dusting your hands with a little flour will make things less messy.
Now pop the cake tin in to the oven, leaving the balls as they are. Bake for around 12 minutes until lightly golden. Use the baking time to get your Rolos unwrapped and ready.
Once cooked take the cookie cups out of the oven and straight away push a Rolo in to the top of each one (be careful as they are of course going to be very hot!) Leave the cookies to cool in the tin completely before removing and enjoying!
Let me know if you make these, especially if you try out some different toppings. They are so quick and easy to do and an instant crowd pleaser!
