I’ve seen these Turtle Thumbprint Cookies here and there around the Internet, but for some crazy reason, I never got around to trying them until now. I don’t know why I waited so long because they are fantastic! I mean, there’s a little pool of caramel in the center. What’s not to love about that? It would not be an exaggeration to say that these shot straight to the top of my must make Christmas cookie list.
Besides all that caramel, I love that the dough isn’t too sweet. I find that a food processor is the best way to finely chop the nuts, but I’ve also used my blender with good results. With a drizzle of chocolate, these cookies are as pretty as they are delicious. I always double the recipe. With five of us, a single batch wouldn’t last a day!
