Giant Turtle Treasure Cookies
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 cup chopped pecans
20 NESTLÉ SIGNATURES TURTLES Candies, cut in half, divided
COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter,
granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer
bowl until creamy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each
addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture; stir in nuts. Turn dough
onto sheet of plastic wrap. Wrap tightly and refrigerate for 2 hours
or until firm.
PREHEAT oven to 375° F.
DIVIDE refrigerated dough into 8 equal pieces. Return 6 pieces to
refrigerator. Working with 2 pieces at a time, form each piece into
a ball; place each on a separate sheet of plastic wrap. Using
lightly floured hands, flatten balls into 6-inch circles. Lift one
circle with wrap and invert onto ungreased baking sheet; peel off
wrap. Arrange 10 Turtle halves on top of circle. Cover with second
circle; peel off wrap. Press edges together gently to seal. Repeat
with remaining refrigerated dough and remaining Turtles halves to
make 3 more cookies.
BAKE for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking
sheet for 10 minutes; remove to wire rack to cool completely. Cut
each cookie into 8 wedges.
