Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/2 cups flour, slifted
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
2 eggs
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
pecan halves
2 oz unsweetened chocolate
1/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup powdered sugar, sifted


Resift flour with soda and salt. Cream 1/2 cup butter and brown sugar together thoroughly. Add 1 whole egg and 1 egg yolk (reserve white) and beat well. Stir in vanilla. Add dry ingredients and mix well. Arrange pecan halves in groups of 3 or 5 on greased baking sheets to resemble head and legs of turtle. Roll rounded teaspoons of dough into balls. Dip bottom of each into remaining unbeated egg white and press lightly onto nuts so tips of nuts show. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-13 minutes. Cool. For frosting: combine chocolate, milk and 1 tablespoon butter in top of double boiler. Cook over simmering water, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat and beat in powdered sugar until smooth and glossy, adding more sugar if needed. Frost tops of cookies.
