Guest Post: Almost Turtle Cookies by Seduction in the Kitchen

Greetings Readers!   Today I have a special treat for you...a guest post....and it's cookies....yum!   Please welcome Dee from Seduction in the Kitchen.   Her blog is all about the love affair that people tend to have with food and has some great recipes to try.   A special thanks to Dee for posting.   So without further ado....

Almost Turtle Cookies
Hi, this is Dee from Seduction in the Kitchen. I love to do all things with food and drink, I love to try new things, including different worldly dishes. The thought behind Seduction in the Kitchen was developed when I realized everyone has an affair with food. It seduces you. In fact my bio I have on my site says:
How many times have we cheated with it or over-indulged in it? How about when it betrays you and adds on a few extra pounds? Food can be just like a relationship and seduces you in all these areas. It gives comfort when needed, joins in on celebrations of the heart, and at times, food even gives your mouth pure joy.

 So now that you know a little about me and my blog, let’s get to this recipe. When Just Prepare It Deliciously, asked me to do a guest post I agreed They did a guest post on my site for a very yummy Berry Beet Smoothie, So yes I love to return the favor and do a post for them. I admit right now I am in my annual Christmas cookie mode. Wait, Christmas cookies??? You’re thinking, it is only September. Yes I do every year Christmas cookie trays, and I make about 20 different kinds and somehow I do different ones each year. To do this I start buying supplies while they are cheap right after, yep Labor Day. It takes a lot of trial and error to make these trays, so that is why I start in September the planning.

For these cookies, I actually planned to do a different thing, I wanted to make a turtle cup type of cookie. Use the sugar cookie as a tassie cup, fill it with melted chocolate and a caramel, then top it off with some pecans. Well, let’s say a case of PMS and feeling lazy, I just threw all into a bowl and actually turned out much better than I thought.

1 roll of sugar cookie dough
1 3oz bag of Fisher chopped pecans
3 squares of Nestle dark chocolate baker's squares, chopped
1 cup of caramel chips

First, you want get the cookie dough out the wrapper and into a bowl.

Next, add the pecans, chocolate, and the caramel into the bowl with the cookie dough.

Mix it all up and form little balls with the dough.

Heat your oven up to 350, now most cookie dough is 350, but I noticed a few "store" brand does have 325. So whatever the wrapper says go by that temperature that stated on your wrapper. Basically what we doing is enhancing their dough with some goodies. Bake them for about 8-10 minutes.

Finally take out the oven let cool on a rack and ENJOY!
