Caramel Nut Acorns

About the Recipe:  These creative cookies are full of brown sugar flavor and combine a delicious caramel layer with chopped pecans.  They take some extra time since you need to form them and then add a caramel layer with nuts. We just loved the cute little acorn shape

Recipe from:  The Best of the Bake-Off Collection, 1959 – Mrs Cecil Buzek, Cincinnati, Ohio Senior Winner

Cook’s Note:  Make sure that you don’t add too much flour.  The dough will be like pie dough and hold together when formed.  If it is too dry, add a tablespoon of water.  I found it easier to use a tablespoon cookie scooper because it makes the bottom flat.  Also, if the caramel becomes too thick, warm it up again in the double boiler.  I used more chopped pecans than the original recipe stated.
