Easy Chocolate Cookie Turtles
Makes 24 cookies (2 dozen)
Prep Time: 15 min.
Baking Time: 13 min.
Preheat oven to 375° F.
Soak pecans in water for 5
minutes. Arrange 5 pecans on ungreased
baking sheets (1 for head, 4 for legs), leaving about a 1-inch
circle in center. 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. Bake for 11 to 13 minutes or until
edges are crisp. Cool on baking sheets on wire
racks for 1 minute and remove to wire racks to cool completely.
Microwave caramels and milk in
medium, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 1
1/2 minutes; stir. Microwave at additional 10- to
15-second intervals, stirring until smooth. Drizzle over turtles.
