Butter Pecan Turtle Cookies

From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...Here is another scrumptious bar cookie that I recommend you try. If you enjoy "turtle" candy, I know you will enjoy these bars with their layers of chocolate, caramel and nuts. The bars are simple to prepare and the recipe is easy to follow. The cookies will quickly disappear from your Christmas cookie tray. Here is how they are made.

2 cups flour
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 cup pecans (halved)
Caramel Layer
2/3 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup milk chocolate chips

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2) To make crust: In a bowl, combine flour, brown sugar and butter and mix at medium speed until combined. Press into an ungreased 9-by-13-inch pan. Sprinkle pecans evenly over unbaked crust.
3) To make caramel layer: In a saucepan, combine butter and brown sugar. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture begins to boil. Boil for 30 seconds to 1 minute, stirring constantly. Pour over crust layer.
4) Bake 18 to 22 minutes, or until caramel layer is bubbly and crust is light golden brown. Remove from oven, sprinkle with chocolate chips. Let chips melt slightly for 2 to 3 minutes. Use a knife to swirl chips as they melt to cover bars. Cool and cut into bars for serving. Yield: 24 cookies.
