    In medium bowl, crumble cookie dough; stir or knead in flour until well mixed. Shape dough into 36 (about 1-inch) balls. Roll and slightly press balls in pecans (do not flatten). Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.

    Bake 8 to 12 minutes or until edges are set and light golden brown. Using back of round metal measuring teaspoon, make 1 1/4-inch indentation in center of each cookie. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to cooking racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 4
    In small microwavable bowl, microwave caramels and whipping cream uncovered on High 1 to 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute, until caramels are melted and smooth. Spoon about 1/2 teaspoon caramel in center of each cookie; sprinkle with salt. Immediately top each caramel-filled cookie with 1 candy, slightly pressing into caramel. Let stand about 10 minutes or until caramel is set. Store covered in refrigerator up to 1 week.

Expert Tips

  • To easily spoon caramel in center of each cookie, cool caramel slightly, and spoon into resealable freezer plastic bag. Cut tiny corner off bag, and pipe into center of cookie.
  • The Hershey’s™ Kisses™ with caramel add extra caramel deliciousness to these cookies.
  • Like dark chocolate with your caramel? Substitute Hershey’s™ Kisses™ dark chocolate candies for the caramel candies.
