Pillsbury Cookie Dough
roll (16.5 oz.) Pillsbury™ refrigerated sugar cookies
cup coconut pecan frosting (from 15.5 oz container)
tablespoons brown sugar
Heat oven to 350°F. Line 2 large cookie sheets with cooking parchment paper.
In medium bowl, break up cookie dough. Stir or knead in flour until well mixed. Shape dough into 24 (about 1 1/2-inch) balls. Place balls 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. With thumb or back of rounded measuring teaspoon dipped in flour, make 1 1/4-inch indentation in center of each ball with finger.
In small bowl, stir frosting, chopped pecans and brown sugar, until well mixed. Spoon about 1/2 teaspoon frosting mixture into center of each cookie.
Bake 10 to 13 minutes, or until edges are light golden brown. Immediately press pecan half into the center of each cookie. Cool 2 minutes on cookie sheet. Remove to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
In small microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips on High 30 to 60 seconds, stirring every 15 seconds until melted. Spoon chocolate into a 1-quart food safe plastic storage bag; cut off small corner of bag. Drizzle onto cookies. Let stand 1 hour until chocolate is set.
