Decadent and so easy to make…pecans, cookies, and caramel make a great combination when you make these Chocoalte Cookie Turtles.
1 2/3 cups (about 100) shelled pecans

20 caramels, unwrapped
2 tablespoons milk

3.Shape slightly rounded tablespoons of cookie dough into balls; place over circle onto pecans. Repeat with remaining pecans and dough, placing turtles two inches apart on baking sheets.
4.Bake for 9 to 11 minutes, or until edges are crisp. Cool on baking sheets on wire racks for 1 minute; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
