Butter Pecan Turtle Cookies

2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup Land O Lakes Sweet Cream Butter, softened

Preheat oven: 350 degrees.
In 3-quart bowl, combine crust ingredients. Mix at med. speed, scrapping sides of bowl often, 2-3 minutes or until well mixed and particles are fine. Pat firmly into ungreased 13x9x2'' pan. Sprink pecans evenly over unbaked crust. Prepare caramel layer (see below); pour evenly over pecans and crust. Bake near center of 350 degree oven for 18-22 minutes, or until entire caramel layer is bubbly and crust is light golden brown. Remove from oven. Immediately sprinkle with chips. Allow chips to melt slightly (2-3 min). Slightly swirl chips as they melt; leave some whole for a marbled effect. Do NOT spread chips. Cool completely, cut into 3-4 dozen bars.

2/3 cup Land O Lakes Sweet Cream Butter
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup whole pecan halves (not chopped)
1 cup milk chocolate chips

In heavy 1-quart saucepan combine brown sugar and butter. Cook over med. heat stirring constantly, until surface of misture begins to boil. Boil 1/2 to 1 min, stirring constantly.
