Remove from heat; stir in 1 cup powdered sugar and chopped pecans. (Add additional whipping cream a few drops at a time, if needed for desired spreading consistency.) Spread 1 tsp of warm filling on each cookie square.

Remove from heat; stir in 1/4 cup powdered sugar and 1 tsp vanilla. Spread glaze over caramel filling. Top each cookie with pecan half.
