Turtle Cookie Recipe

The turtle cookie recipe is reminiscent of the well loved confection. A chocolate cookie surrounded by pecans, and topped with melted chocolate and caramel-simply tasty!


2 1/2 cups pecan halves

1/2 cup water

1/2 cup granulated sugar

3/4 cup salted butter, softened

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 egg

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 cup cocoa powder

48 round milk chocolate-covered caramels, unwrapped (Rolo brand or Reisen from Werther’s candies work fantastic)


2 x medium bowls

Cookie sheets


Step 1: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Step 2: In a medium bowl, soak pecan halves in water while making dough; drain well.

Step 3: In a medium bowl, beat sugar, vanilla extract, and egg with an electric mixer set on medium speed until light and fluffy.

Step 4: Beat in flour and cocoa powder until dough firms.

Step 5: On an ungreased cookie sheet, for each cookie, place 5 pecans to look like the head and legs of a turtle.

Step 6: Shape dough by rounded teaspoonfuls into 1-inch balls. Place ball on top of each group of 5 pecans, pressing lightly into pecans with the palm of your hand.

Step 7: Bake 7-10 minutes or until set. Immediately press 1 caramel candy gently on top of each cookie. Let cookie set for 3 minutes before transferring to a cooling surface.

The Turtle Cookie Recipe makes about 48 cookies.
