Salted turtle cookies recipe

Yields 3 dozen

Ingredients:

For the cookies:

  • 3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) butter
  • 2 cups plus 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup caramel bits
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

For the topping:

  • Sea salt
  • 1/3 cup caramel sauce (store-bought or use this recipe)
  • Chopped pecans

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter. Set aside and allow it to cool for 10 minutes.
  3. In another bowl, measure flour, baking soda, and salt and whisk to combine. Set aside
  4. Add both sugars to the butter and mix by hand or with an electric mixer. Add the egg and egg yolk and mix to combine. Stir in the almond extract. Slowly stir in the dry ingredients and mix just until combined. Add the chocolate chips, caramel bits and chopped pecans and mix thoroughly. If the batter is tough, use your hands to get everything combined.
  5. Scoop dough onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet (a 1-1/4 ice cream scoop works well). Chill the dough for 15 minutes.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and sprinkle with sea salt. Let the cookies cool completely. Once cooled, drizzle with caramel sauce and chopped pecans.
