Rolo Stuffed Oatmeal Cookies {Back-to-School Printable}

Pin It

Would it surprise any of you to hear that I was a major goody-goody teacher's pet in school?

I was the wannabe hall monitor.

I once got in trouble for reading in class. Not reading a passed note. Reading a novel. In the fifth grade.

Even though my mom will say I was a terrible teenager, all surly and teenagey, I was a goody-goody even then.

I never snuck out of my house.

I never cut class.

I did other things that shall remain untold. {Hi Mom!} But, in all truthfulness, I was a good girl.

The teacher's favorite. The one they could always count on to be on time, have her assignment, and not cheat. {There was, in fact, unbeknownst to me, a cheating ring in my sophomore history class that extended from the person behind me copying from my quizzes that wrapped all the way around the room so that the kid in the farthest corner had my answers on his paper.}

So would it surprise you then to know that, as much as I really do love being the Hospitality Committee chairperson and as much as I love doing things for the teachers at Jordan's school, I want them to like me.

And to me like is done through kindness, aka food. Or, in my universe, dessert.


When I stuffed Rolos inside of peanut butter cookies it was such a huge hit that I knew I had to do it again. Again, stuffing Rolos inside of cookies isn't new. I'm not the first to do it and I won't be the last. But today I'm sharing with you new-to-me Rolos stuffed inside of oatmeal cookies.

I love oatmeal cookies. Almost more than any other kind. {Shhh...you won't tell peanut butter, right?}

These cookies are for the teachers next week. I'm going to put them in their boxes on the first day of school.

{Pssst...they freeze reeealllly well.}


And because I want them to like me a lot, I made tags for the bags. These are "smart cookie" cookies.

Want the tags? So you can make some cookies for your kids' teachers?

Gotcha covered. For a .pdf copy of this printable, click here.


Now you can be the most popular too. Dessert = Like. It's just the truth.

I love a good oatmeal cookie - they are so delish when made soft 'n chewy and with Rolo's in them? Oh yes!

I was an overzealous, studious, hard-working student. I look back on my childhood and think, gosh, I should have cut class or thrown spit balls, at least once in my life!

I knew it, you are totally the girl that was too nice, and was so perfect;p I was so the same in that I wanted everyone to like me, but I was never great in school, at least I never cheated. And these cookies, they will make you the most popular girl around!

Oh c'mon I'm sure the teachers love you. I bet they fought over who gets Jordan in their class cause they knew "mom" would bring stuff like this in! YUM.

I'm drooling. These cookies look ahmaaaazing. Rolos inside oatmeal cookies?? Hello, deliciousness. PS, those printables are adorable. PPS, I was a goody-goody in high school too, but hopefully no one cheated off my history tests.

Haha, I too was Hermione Granger-esque in school. Treats are definitely my go-to method for making friends ;) Have you ever read the book The 5 Love Languages? I'm pretty sure they need a sixth language that involves food, because that one is me.

Hubs just said the other day "Make me a cookie with Rolos!" Maybe I will just make him yours :) Love oatmeal.

The way to people's hearts is through their tummys! You know I love these Dorothy, because they are reminiscent of your rolo stuffed PB cookies, which I've made and remade about 4 times now. Love the little rolo surprise inside. And oatmeal cookies are my favorite - love the chewy + soft texture oats gives :)

Gosh, Dorothy...These looks soooo gooood! I think these just may have to be made at my house and stored in the freezer for my morning coffee. :) Have a great weekend!!

Dorothy, these look absolutely delicious. And you're totally right, they won't just like you for this, they're going to love you. If I were Jordan's new teacher, we'd be BFFs.! The printables are fantastic and love the smart cookie wording. Do you use a circle punch to cut them out? I need to get me some of those and send my kids teachers some treats.

-Lisa.
P.S. I noticed you typo'd 'school' in the title as 'shool'.Just thought you should know.

Too funny-- I'm making the same tags for Bella's teacher. Apparently I missed the memo that we do back to school gifts, so I had to scramble and of course turned to cookies haha!

I never said that you were a terrible kid...you just didn't speak more than one word sentences to us for a few years. But I could never complain because you were such a goody goody! Besides, I knew how to make you talk; I just took you shopping! With all the trouble you see teenagers getting into, I couldn't have asked for a better daughter!
Love you lots, Mom

Oh my gosh--thank you for this printable!! The timing is perfect--I just signed up to be on the teacher appreciation committee, so these are JUST the thing I need. Also, the cookies sound awesome: rolos and oatmeal are two of my favorite things!

You're welcome Ashley! :) Enjoy!

we tried these this weekend - oh so yummy! :)

 
At August 20, 2012 at 7:44 PM , Blogger Something Swanky said...

Soooooooo.... I don't know how to say this, but... I just made practically the exact same cookie.

Yep.

And I've been so lost in boxes and moving that I hadn't even been to your blog in days (sorry about that, by the way)!!!! Can you believe that?

And when I took the first bite of the cookie tonight, I was like, "OOOOOOOMMMMMMMGGGGGG." And my husband was like, "Oh, that's your 'this is a genius recipe' sound."

SOOOOO good, right???

I love any thing that is stuffed with rolos. Cookies never last long enough to be frozen in my house. Too many cookie monsters lurking about.

Rolo stuffed anything sounds good to me!

Thanks for sharing at Mealtime Monday! Can't wait to see what you link up tomorrow night!
