In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda and salt. In large bowl, beat together butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla until fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in pecans. Turn dough onto sheet of plastic wrap. Wrap tightly and refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm (wrapped dough can be refrigerated for up to 8 weeks, thaw in refrigerator before continuing with recipe). Cut into 8 equal wedges. Working with 2 wedges at a time and keeping remaining dough covered and refrigerated, form each wedge into a ball and place each on sheet of plastic wrap. Using lightly floured hand, flatten balls into 6" circles, lift one with wrap and transfer to ungreased baking sheet. Peel off wrap. Arrange 5 Turtles on top of circle on baking sheet 1" center and remaining 4 around edge. Cover with second circle of dough, peel off wrap. Press edges together gently to seal.

Bake and cool. Cut each cookie into 8 wedges to serve.
