Ingredients

  • 1 tube (16-1/2 ounces) refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup hot caramel ice cream topping
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/3 cup hot fudge ice cream topping, warmed
  • 36 pecan halves

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Place cookie dough in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature 5-10 minutes to soften. Add flour; beat until blended. Shape dough into 1-in. balls; place in greased mini-muffin cups. Press evenly onto bottoms and up the sides of cups.
  2. Bake 6-8 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Press a deep indentation in center of each with the end of a wooden spoon handle. Bake 8-10 minutes longer or until golden brown. Cool in pans 5 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
  3. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy; gradually beat in caramel topping. Fold in chopped pecans. Spoon 2 teaspoons filling into each cup. Drizzle with fudge topping; top with pecan halves. Refrigerate until serving. Yield: 3 dozen.
Freeze option: Freeze undecorated cookies, layered between waxed paper, in freezer containers. To use, thaw in covered containers and decorate as directed.
