Pecan Caramel Surprises

I should have known better than to trust a Rachael Ray baking recipe. The woman herself admits that she knows nothing about baking and that she looks for shortcuts whenever she can. But the pictures looked so good and I’m always on the lookout for good eggless cookie recipes, so I tried her pecan caramel surprises. You make shortbread dough, adding ground pecans to it and then wrap it around a kraft caramel and bake.   

When the cookies first came out, the caramel was nice and melty and it was a pretty decent cookie. An hour later, the caramel is hard and chewy. I guess the surprise is that you have to go to the dentist to replace the tooth you lost.

I'm not going to give you the recipe. It's not worth it.

Update: R called me at work to tell me that if you mircowave them, the caramel gets nice and gooey again. He did warn me that over mircowaving results in exploding caramel. As in exploding all over the mircowave. Sigh.

Pecan Caramel Surprises
I was looking for reviews of this cookie and came across your blog. I agree that the cookies are good right out of the oven but not so much once they have cooled. Here is what I did to fix it. I made the cookies as stated but did not put the caramel inside. When they came out of the oven I rolled them in powdered sugar. Then I melted the caramel with a little heavy cream and drizzled it on top of the cookies. Because of the cream the caramel does not reharden so much and you still get the same flavors. The cookies really are delicious with this change.
