#3475 - Caramel Turtle Cookies

(by Shirley McNevich)

your favorite chocolate chip cookie dough
2 cups shelled pecans (more if necessary)
20 Kraft caramels
2 TBSP milk

Prepare your chocolate chip cookie dough. Place 5 pecans on a greased cookie sheet (1 for the head of the turtle at the top, 2 for the top set of legs, 2 for the bottom set of legs) and leave a small circle empty in the center of the pecans. Drop a spoonful of cookie dough into the small hole you left between the pecans, making sure the dough is touching all of the pecans. Repeat with more dough and pecans (you'll probably only get about 6 cookies on one cookie sheet to give them room to spread when baking). Bake at 375 degrees for 9-12 minutes. Cool slightly, then remove from cookie sheets and place on paper towels to cool completely. In a microwave safe bowl add the caramels and the milk--microwave on high in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until caramel is smooth. Drizzle the caramel mixture over the cooled cookies.
