PREHEAT oven to 375° F.

SOAK pecans in water for 5 minutes. Arrange 5 pecans on ungreased baking sheets (1 for head, 4 for legs), leaving about a 1-inch circle in center.

SHAPE slightly rounded tablespoons of cookie dough into balls; place over circle onto pecans. Repeat with remaining pecans and dough, placing turtles two inches apart on baking sheets.

BAKE for 9 to 11 minutes or until edges are crisp. Cool on baking sheets on wire racks for 1 minute; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

MICROWAVE caramels and milk in medium, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 1 1/2 minutes; stir. Microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring until smooth. Drizzle over turtles.

NOTE: Dough from one batch Original NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Chocolate Chip Cookies (NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels 6-oz. pkg. recipe) may be used.
