Sharon's StoryA friend introduced us and the boys when they were young to Turtle Cookies, which are the waffle iron cookie recipe with frosting. Now I've introduced my grandsons to these yummy chocolate Turtle Cookies. They are a big hit with this new generation too!
To make the cookies follow Just a Pinch Recipe posted by Marsha Baker, "Waffle Iron Cookies". I did not post the recipe for the cookies because her recipe and mine are exactly the same.
brown sugar, firmly packed
2 1/2 Tbsp
1Combine first 4 ingredients in a sauce pan, bring to a boil and boil for 3 min.
2Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract.
3Allow to cool a bit then add powdered sugar to make a soft, pourable frosting.
4Pour frosting over the cooled waffle iron cookies, filling the holes and making a smooth, shiny turtle shell. (Follow Just a Pinch Recipe posted by Marsha Baker, "Waffle Iron Cookies" to make the cookies.)
