Turtle Cookies

Turtle cookies are soft and chewy chocolate cookies filled with chopped pecans, pockets of melted caramel and gooey chocolate chips.  They're easy to make and so delicious.

In a small bowl, mix the chopped pecans, chocolate chips and chopped caramel candy pieces until well combined.

Step 1:  

In another bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, cornstarch and salt until well combined.

Step 2:  

In a large mixing bowl, whisk in the cooled melted butter with the light brown and granulated sugars until well combined. Whisk in the egg, egg yolk, vanilla extract and cocoa powder until smooth and well combined.

Step 3:  

Stir the dry ingredients into the wet until just combined. Fold in the remaining mix of pecans, caramels and chocolate chips. Cover the cookie dough and transfer the the fridge to chill for 30 - 60 minutes before baking.

Step 4:  

Preheat the oven to 375 F (190 C). Roll the dough ball into the reserved cup of pecans, chocolate and caramel pieces and place the cookie dough balls onto the lined baking sheet about 3 inches (8 cm) apart.

Step 5:  

Bake at 375 F (190 C) for 9 - 11 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are set and the centers are slightly puffed.

Step 6:  

Cool the cookies on the baking sheet for 5 minutes. Then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely to room temperature. Drizzle the top of each cookie with melted chocolate if you like and enjoy.
