Directions

  1. Cream Butter Flavor CRISCO(R) 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.

A little time-consuming but a delicious and pretty cookie. Only thing to watch, the caramel will continue to spread, even after cooling. Some of the cookies ended up looking a little sloppy because of it. Keep them level.

They were ok but the cookie was a little to sweet for me. You also need a lot more than 30 pecan halves I think they might have ment 300.

Wow. NICE cookie. My only change was to change the chocolate to a chocolate ganache drizzle. This is a definite crowd pleaser!
