Butter Pecan Turtle Cookies



2 cups all purpose flour, sifted 1/2 cup butter, melted 1 cup light brown sugar, packed



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a 3 Qt. mixing bowl, combine crust ingredients. Mix at medium speed, scraping sides of bowl often, 2-3 minutes or until well mixed and particles are fine.

Pat firmly into ungreased 13x9x2 inch pan. Sprinkle pecans evenly over unbaked crust. Prepare caramel layer (see below); pour evenly over pecans and crust.

Bake near center of 350 degree F oven for 18-22 minutes, or until entire caramel layer is bubbly and crust is light golden brown. Remove from oven. Immediately, sprinkle with milk chocolate chips. Allow chocolate chips to melt slightly (2-3 minutes.) Slightly swirl chips as they melt; leave some whole for a marbled effect. Do not spread chips. Cool completely. Cut into 3-4 dozen bars.

Caramel Layer:


2/3 cup butter 1 cup milk chocolate chips 1 cup whole pecan halves 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed


To prepare caramel layer, in a heavy 1 Qt. saucepan, combine brown sugar, and butter. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until surface of mixture begins to boil. Continue boiling 1/2-1 minute, stirring constantly.
