  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup finely chopped nuts

    This recipe is extremely easy and was a huge hit with family and friends alike! At first I thought it would be extremely rich with the butter, sugar and Rolos combined, but it was the perfect meld! Just the right combination of sweet. Definitely add the finely chopped pecans also! It has quickly become a family favorite and one I bring to gatherings of all kinds throughout the year!
