Cook Time:10 min
Yield:5 dozen cookies


  • Crisco® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray
  • 1 (18.4 oz.) package Pillsbury™ Family Size Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix
  • 1/2 cup Pillsbury BEST™ All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup Crisco® Pure Vegetable Oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups pecan halves
  • 22 vanilla caramels, unwrapped
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 teaspoons powdered sugar


  1. 1.
    HEAT oven to 350°F. Coat baking sheets with no-stick cooking spray. Combine brownie mix, flour, water, oil and egg in large bowl. Mix until evenly blended. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto prepared baking sheets. Arrange 5 pecan pieces under each to resemble head and legs of turtle.

  3. 3.
