Chocolate Chip Turtle Cookies Recipe:
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
2/3 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups milk chocolate chips
14 Kraft caramels
3 tablespoons heavy cream or half and half
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl; set aside.  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 chocolate chips.  Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.  Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
