Hidden Treasure Cookies

These cookies are so simple and easy to make. You can vary the treasures in your cookies, but my favorite is with Rolos.

Hidden Treasure Cookies


  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped nuts (I use pecans)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 12 Rolos, each cut into 4 pieces


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Mix 1/2 cup powdered sugar, the butter and vanilla in large bowl. Stir in flour, nuts and salt until dough holds together.
  2. Mold portions of dough around pieces of caramels to for 1-inch balls. Place about 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Bake 10-12 minutes or until set but not brown. Roll in powdered sugar while warm. Cool completely on wire rack. Roll in powdered sugar again.
