These cookies have a rolo baked in the center. Aren’t they a pretty? I love the way they look. This is an impressive looking cookie, and the best part is they taste as great as they look! I made these for a Super Bowl party we went to. (I actually took these pictures whith the plate sitting on my lap in the car on our way! ) I think this would be a great recipe to make someone you love for Valentines Day! I love that holiday! So here is to a Happy Heart Day you all! Have fun baking! Lots of love XOXO Melanie

In a large bowl, beat 1 cup sugar, brown sugar and butter until light. Add vanilla and eggs; beat well. Add flour mixture, blend well. Stir in 1/2 cup of the pecans.
For each cookie with floured hands, shape about 1 tablespoonful dough around 1 Rolo, covering completely.
In a small bowl, combine remaining 1/2 cup pecans and 1 tablespoon sugar. Press one side of each ball into pecan mixture. Place nut side up, 2″ apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees for 7 to 10 minutes or until set and slightly cracked. Cool 2 minutes. Remove from cookie sheet to cool on wire rack. Melt the vanilla flavored candy coating in a saucepan or in a baggie in the microwave. Drizzle over cookies.
