Directions:
Melt the margarine, remove from heat and add the brown sugar, vanilla, and pecans. Mix well and then add the flour and baking powder. Shape dough into ball; flatten one side and peak the top so you'll have some way to hang on to the cookies when you dip them. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 350 for 15-18 minutes and cool.

Melt caramels; add evaporated milk; mix well. Dip the flattened ends into the caramel mixture and then into finely ground pecans. Place cookie on its side on waxed paper; put waxed paper between layers when storing.
