Turtle Cookies

I have finally acquired pecans! Yeah! I realised that most people don’t like even walnuts in their desserts (aka my husband) and I try to sneak them in!
One of my dearest friends, received a very successful badge of chunky white chocolate cookies and she said that they were great but.. she would prefer some cookies of a well known brand that you can buy from the supermarket. I said I would try to copycat them!
It would be simply, their main ingredients are pecan, chocolate caramel! I surfed away for a night and came with two similar recipes. A chocolate turtle cookie and a plain turtle cookie!
By the way, the plain ones won by far, for some really weird reason. The chocolate ones are more pretty, more store bought by they don’t have the same taste like the plain ones! Who knew!
The recipe for the Turtle Chip Cookies makes 13 cookies and the Chocolate Turtle Cookies makes 14 cookies! You may find the measurements odd but I had to divide them, who many cookies does a couple needs after all? I have to add they lasted almost 2 days until I had none!
Let’s go! for the plain ones, you will need

6 tablespoons butter softened
3/4 cups brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp teaspoon vanilla
1/8 tsp teaspoon baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1 1/8 cups ap flour
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup caramel bits
1/4 cup crashed pecan
Like always, mix the butter with the sugars until fluffy! Add the egg until it is fully incorporated. Add the dry ingredients until you have a uniform mix. Add manually the chocolates, caramel and pecan lightly! Leave the mix at fridge until you make the next badge!
Spoon the dough and cook for 10 minutes. It will be very soft to transfer at first, but have faith, don’t overcook them! In 5 minutes transfer them to cool completely!
Recipe for Chocolate one
1 1/4 cups ap flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1⁄8 tsp salt
1/3 cup Dutch processed cocoa
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 large eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup caramel bits
Exactly like above, only difference is that the cookies are going to be more in shape, because of the cocoa thus more cookie like!
