TURTLE THUMBPRINT COOKIES
It's cookie season at the Salty Cooker, and these turtle cookies have everything you love in one cookie; caramel, chocolate and pecans! The pecan meal comes from Pearson Farm. This pecan meal is perfect for cookies, crusts, and cakes.
2 1/4 cup 1.1 Gluten-free Flour
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup butter, room temperature
1 1/2 cups Pearson Farm Pecan Meal, for rolling
1/2 cup caramel, for topping
1 oz chocolate, melted
Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper. In a mixing bowl, add the butter and sugar and mix on high for 3 minutes. Mix in the eggs and vanilla. Add in the salt and flour. Once mixed, place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Add the pecan meal to a bowl. Scoop out the cookie dough using a 1 1/2" ice cream scoop, roll in the pecan meal and place on the cookie sheet. Use a spoon to press down the center slightly and fill halfway with caramel. Bake for 11-13 minutes. Remove and allow to cool completely. Melt the chocolate in the microwave and drizzle on top of the cookies. Enjoy! For more of my recipes like this one, visit The Salty Cooker.
