These turtle cookies are so delicious! These would be a great addition to a Christmas party, on a dessert table or a holiday cookie exchange.

They’re crunchy and a little chewy and the butter cream frosting is so sweet and creamy it melts in your mouth, and adds a wonderful finish to this cookie.


For the cookies: - Sticks butter - Sugar - Vanilla - Egg - Flour - Baking powder - Pecans

In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, using the whisk attachment, add the butter, sugar, vanilla, egg, and blend until light and fluffy.


Switch to the paddle attachment. Add the chopped pecans, and blend lightly.


In a separate bowl, add the flour, and baking powder, and stir well to blend. Add the flour a little at a time and mix on low to blend, until all the flour is added.


Continue to blend the cookie dough until it's completely blended and a smooth ball starts to form. Scrape down the mixing bowl as needed.


Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper, and roll the cookie dough into small balls, about 1 inch balls, and place the balls on the parchment paper.
