This Turtle cookies recipe is one of the best dessert recipes you can make all year round for any occasion. In fact, you can make a batch and store the cookie dough in a freezer and bake them whenever you want. To freeze the cookie dough, you can first scoop it onto a freezer safe cookie sheet and freeze it for about 30 minutes. Then remove the dough and place it in a freezer bag, labeled. This way you can use the desired amount of dough and bake the cookies fresh. For the frozen dough, you may have to bake it a little longer and adjust the timer on your oven accordingly. You can store these cookies in an airtight container for up to one week.

You can substitute the shortening with butter in dessert recipes, and it will still taste the same. When you’re cooking the caramel, you want to look for the amber color. Always bring the cream to room temperature or warmer before you start making the caramel sauce to get a smooth texture. Don’t let it cook for too long as it might turn way too dark and ruin the taste. The caramel sauce when hot seems quite thin until it cools. It will, however, thicken up upon cooling. It is always a good idea to refrigerate the cookie dough for at least 2 hours before you start to bake the cookies. This way the cookies will not fall apart and come out a lot firmer from the oven.
