Turtle Sundae Cookies

I got this recipe from a friend, Jayne Lancour. We LOVE these cookies and made them on Sunday before Don came home.

Turtle Sundae Cookies
Gloria Pitzer - Secret Recipes Newsletter - July 2000

3 sticks butter or margarine
1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
1-1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
3 eggs
4-1/2 cups self-rising flour
10-oz bag English Toffee Bits
12-oz bag MINI chocolate chips
7-oz pkg chopped pecans

Cream first five dough things well, adding last three turtle things working these patiently into dough. Shape the dough using plastic ice cream scoop packed and leveled off over edge of bowl. Put 2" apart on Pam-sprayed cookie sheets (wiping off excess Pam first). Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes or until set and brown only around edges letting cool 10 minutes on baking sheets before removing to waxed paper until firm. Makes 66 cookies.

For the self-rising flour I used:
1 cup all-purpose flour PLUS 1 teaspoon baking powder, ½ teaspoon, salt and ¼ teaspoon baking soda (I did this for each cup of flour needed for the
recipe!)
