Caramel Pecan Cookies

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by nadia murray

My sister sent me this recipe and I have no idea where she got it. It is a delicious variation on chocolate chip cookies and I usually double the recipe when I make these. I sometimes add semisweet chocolate chips but this was not in the original recipe.

I remember why I don't make cookies on a regular basis! Cookies take time! CAUTION: Be sure to use parchment paper and leave space so the cookies don't run together! Made per the recipe, with 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips ~ I cut the Rolo candies in half and batch #1 had thin spread out places where there was too much caramel! I dug through the batter and cut the candies in half again and batch #2 looked better! I got 40 cookies. Made for Fall PAC 2008 -

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine flour, soda and salt, if using; set aside.
  2. Beat together butter and both sugars, until well blended.
  3. Mix in egg, half and half and vanilla.
  4. Blend in flour mixture until smooth.
  5. Stir in, by hand, Rolo candies, pecans and chocolate chips (if using).
  6. Wrap and chill dough, at least an hour before baking (not part of the original directions but I prefer to do this).
  7. Drop dough by tablespoon onto silpat or parchment lined baking sheets (necessary because of the caramel, trust me!).
  8. Bake at 350°F for 10-13 minutes until edges are golden brown and center is still slightly soft.
