Caramel Pecan Turtle Cookies

Ingredients

Original recipe makes 5 dozen cookies


Cookie:

Directions

  1. Cream Butter Flavor CRISCO® and sugars together. Add milk. Beat in eggs one at a time; add vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt. Mix into creamed mixture. Chill for one hour.
  2. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  3. Roll out 1/3 of the dough at a time, to about 1/4-inch thickness on a floured surface. Cut out with 2 1/4-inch cookie cutters. Place 2 inches apart on un-greased baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 5-6 minutes, or until edges are slightly golden. Remove immediately to cooling rack.
  5. Combine caramels and milk in microwave-safe bowl. Cover with waxed paper. Microwave at 50% (MEDIUM)for 1 minute. Stir. Repeat until smooth (or melt on rangetop in small saucepan on very low heat). Drop rounded teaspoonfuls on top of each cookie. Place 3 pecan halves around edge of caramel to resemble turtle.
  6. Place chocolate chips in microwave-safe cup. Microwave at 50% (MEDIUM) for 1 minute. Stir. Repeat until smooth (or melt on rangetop in small saucepan on very low heat). Spread rounded teaspoonfuls over top of caramel. Do not cover the pecans. Cool completely.Caramel Pecan Turtle Cookies Recipe

I won't touch Crisco with a 100 foot pole....I wonder if real butter would work.  These sound good!
