Ingredients

  • 1

    package cream cheese, softened

  • 1

    cup butter, softened

  • 1/2

    cup sugar

  • 2

    teaspoons maple extract

  • 2 1/2

    cups flour

  • 24

    Kraft caramels

  • 4

    teaspoons half-and-half

  • 1/2

    cup finely chopped pecans

Directions

Heat oven to 350°F. Beat cream cheese and butter in large bowl with mixer until blended. Add sugar and extract; mix well. Gradually add flour, beating well after each addition. Microwave caramels and half-and-half in small microwaveable bowl on high 1 1/2 minutes or until caramels are completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring after 1 minute. Cool 5 minutes. Meanwhile, shape dough into 48 (1 inch) balls. Roll in nuts until evenly coated. Place, 2 inches apart, on parchment covered baking sheets. Indent centers. Pour caramel sauce into resealable plastic bag. Cut small piece off one bottom corner of bag; use to squeeze caramel sauce into indentations in dough. Bake 12 to 14 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets 5 minutes. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
