place on wire racks. Cool 15 minutes or until completely cooled.

tablespoons margarine; cook over low heat, stirring frequently, until caramels
are melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat. Stir in 3/4 cup powdered
sugar and chopped pecans. (Add additional whipping cream a few drops at a time,
if needed for desired spreading consistency.) Spread 1 teaspoon warm filling on
each cookie square.
* In small saucepan, combine chocolate chips, 1 tablespoon whipping cream and 2
teaspoons margarine. Cook over low heat, stirring frequently, until chocolate
chips are melted and mixture is smooth. REMOVE FROM HEAT. Stir in 3 tablespoons
powdered sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Spread glaze evenly over caramel filling
on each cookie. Top each with pecan half. ~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~
