Turtle Cookies

I bought those caramel bits at the grocery store last week. Ever since, I have been looking for new recipes to make with them. These are my new favorite spin off of chocolate chip cookies (including normal chocolate chip cookies). If you like turtles, you have to try these. I am not into flat cookies and these stay nice and fluffy. They are so soft and lucious: really, really good!

12 tablespoons butter, softened
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 cups flour
3/4 cups chocolate chips
1/2 cup caramel bites
1/2 cup pecan pieces

1. Preheat oven to 375.
2. Beat butter and sugars together until light and fluffy.
3. Add vanilla, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and egg. Continue to beat until everything is incorporated.
4. Mix in the flour until everything is fully incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chips, caramel bits, and pecans.
5. Scoop cookie dough onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 12 minutes or until edges are lightly brown (center will not be set but continue to cook after being pulled from the oven. Let cool for five minutes on tray (if you can wait) before serving.
