Chocolate Chip Turtle Cookies

These are a very good cookie and make a good amount.   You can get about 4 1/2 doz. of a decent size cookie.  You could probably add other ingredients if you like and also omit some if you like.  I've never put corn starch in my cookies before.  Wonder what it really does to the dough.  I did notice with these cookies they didn't flatten out, which I really like.  Hope you give them a try, well worth the little bit of time it takes to make them.

adapted from here
¾ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
¾ cup brown sugar
¼ cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cornstarch
¼ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup dark chocolate chocolate chips
1 cup pecans, chopped
¾ cup caramel bits
  1. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars with a hand or stand mixer until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes. Mix in the eggs and vanilla, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  2. In a separate bowl, add the flour, baking soda, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt and whisk to combine. With the mixer on low speed, slowly add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips, pecans and caramel bits by hand and cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours and up to 24 hours.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350ºF and line baking sheets with parchment paper. Scoop balls of dough onto the baking sheets, and bake for 9-12 minutes until the edges are just starting the brown and the top still looks slightly undercooked. Remove from the oven and cool for 2-3 minutes on the baking sheet before moving the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
