About a month ago I tried a new (for me) cookie recipe.......... an average "vanilla" cookie with lots of finely chopped pecans.  The "frosting" was lines of vanilla (caramel?) squirted on in one

About a month ago I tried a new (for me) cookie recipe.......... an average "vanilla" cookie with lots of finely chopped pecans.  The "frosting" was lines of vanilla (caramel?) squirted on in one direction and lines of chocolate in the other direction. 
I took the last out of the freezer and I need to make more. 
I can't find the recipe!!  I've searched all over the 'net with no luck.
And I haven't given much information, have I?
Does anyone have any idea what I'm hoping for?
TIA

Nancy,  Sounds like a pecan sandie with (frosting). I go on a lot of cooking sites so I will keep my
eyes open for it.

Off hand, don't have the recipe.  As Carol P said, I, too, will keep my eyes open for it and will let you know if I find anything that sounds like that.  Sure hope you are able to find it.

Isn't this site just plain AMAZING !?!  I searched and searched and searched for this recipe  ( including Taste of Home where I looked for "Caramel Pecan" cookies ) and had no luck at all.   
Because of the kind, knowledgable people on this board - I have it!!

As the 3 Musketeers said, "All for one, and one for all!"

Glad to help out on the recipe search. I'm a retired librarian and I developed some great computer researching skills while helping the students in the library at our local community college. It was one of my favorite jobs.

Verlee --- I just finished a batch and they are GOOD.  There are comments about the cookies being too thin so I added an extra glob of flour.
Making the caramel is time consuming and it calls for 1/4 cup cream ...... what do I do with the left over expensive cream?  Next time I'm going to melt regular candy caramels and use that.
It is a recipe worth keeping.

Nancy - thanks for the feedback on the recipe. I'm sure that substituting regular caramels would work fine. There's also a Hershey's Caramel flavored ice cream syrup that would probably work as well.

Don't your beloved cats deserve some nice cream in their dishes?!? lol

"A GLOB OF FLOUR" ............... Tongue out
A glob of flour is the most important thing you add to cookie dough.  I add a glob to every single batch of cookie dough I make.  For the cookie recipe that was accused of being too thin, a glob is even more important.  It's more important and even larger.
It's difficult to give measurements of a glob ............ a glob for cookie dough making 3 dozen cookies is smaller than the glob for making 4 or 5 dozen.
The best was to get the correct glob is to just add some flour to the measuring cup.   Don't level that cup of flour - add to it  If the recipe calls for 2 cups - add a glob to both cups.  If it calls for 1 1/4 cup of flour add a good glob to the 1 cup and a little glob to the 1/4 cup.
There --- you have the information on globs.

I have a hard time with baking times. If the recipes make small tarts, how would I figure the baking time for a 9 or 10 inch tart. Same goes for cheese cakes. If they are large how do I do mini ones. The final is with cupcakes. what if I want to make a cake into cupcakes???????
Thanks for any heip you can give me

Nancy, I love your "GLOB" concept! I have just about decided that in the Nestle chocolate chip recipe. I use 2 1/3 c flour which takes care of the glob. However, in my oatmeal cookies I think putting them in the refrigerator over night made up for the extra glob.
I plan to remember the glob theory now whenever I make cookies now!!
