Salty Caramel Pecan Cookies

Our neighbors have a few pecan trees and they had a great harvest this year which they were kind enough to share with us. I wanted to make something really special for them so I think that these Salty Caramel Pecan Cookies will be just the perfect Thank You gift! We have loved this recipe and can hardly keep the cookie jar full they go that quick. These cookies have that great sweet and salty taste with the creamy caramel and a crunchy pecan, a delicious combination for a cookie.

  1. These cookies look so good. I recently bought a bag of the sea salt caramel baking chips and have been looking for a recipe to use them in. I like your recipe, however in the ingredient list it states 1-1/2 sea salt baking chips. Does this mean 1-1/2 cups or 1-1/2 bags? Thank you.

    1. Hi Claudine,
      It is 1-1/2 cups of the sea salt caramel baking chips. Thank you so much for asking that question it gave me an opportunity to correct the omission, I really appreciate it. Hope you enjoy the cookies as much as we did and thanks so much for stopping by!
