Pecans are the most versatile tree nut — they can be eaten alone — raw, roasted or flavored — as a healthy, delicious snack or they can enhance almost any recipe as an ingredient. Pecans are perfect as a topping or ingredient in salads, vegetables, yogurt, oatmeal, sauces, breads and, of course, every kind of dessert. Store pecans in the freezer and have them on hand year-round.

Flourless Chocolate Turtle Cookies

Servings: 24 | Prep: N/A | Cook: N/A


3 cups powdered sugar 3/4 cup dutch process or special dark cocoa powder 1 teaspoon kosher salt 3 large egg whites 1 large egg 2/3 cup dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips 1/2 cup caramel bits 1/2 cup chopped U.S. pecans, plus a few more for topping if desired


Parchment paper is a must for this recipe. Do not substitute with a silicon mat. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Whisk together the powdered sugar, cocoa and salt. Add the eggs. Whisk again until smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips, caramel bits, and pecans. This a very stiff dough. Drop by tablespoon onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Flatten with the back of a spoon for a thin cookie. Top each cookie with a few extra pecans if desired. Bake 12 minutes, until the cookies are just set. They should be puffy and cracked across the top. Let cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire cooling rack. Let cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
