Introduction: Caramel Turtle Cookies

Yes, you read that right. No, it is not a typo. There really are just three ingredients in these cookies! THREE! That’s it! When you are in a pinch, these are a great option that will impress your guests. They will likely never know the cookies are not completely homemade!

Step 1: The Ingredients!

All you need to make these wonderful cookies are:

  • 1 package of Toll House Pecan Turtle Delight cookie dough
  • 1 bag of soft caramels (I used Kraft)
  • 12 pecan halves

How simple is that?!

Step 2: The Directions!

The directions are equally as simple as the ingredients:

Preheat your own according to the directions on the back of the cookie dough package. Roll the pre-cut squares into a ball. Place a pecan on top of the ball of dough. Then, set a caramel on top of that and press it in the cookie dough ball just slightly. Bake for 13-14 minutes. Let cool completely before removing from the cookie sheet. Enjoy!

Step 3: The Final Product!

Wow! Don't those look absolutely delicious? Once they bake, these cookies turn out to be the gooiest, tastiest, and most balanced cookies ever. I make these all the time and I am always asked for the recipe. People are shocked when I tell them it is only THREE ingredients!
