Family night turtle cookies

These are fast, good and fun.
Like mini brownies, like little turtles.
If you have the 1974 Ukiah ward cook book you have this recipe.
if not (unlikely)......... Here is Janet Fawsons treat for FHE, or movie night.
Family night turtle cookies-Janet Fawson
Melt 1/2 cup butter with 6 tablespoons cocoa Stir together well
Add 1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar (to taste)
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
now add 1 cup flour and a dash of salt. Don't over stir. It will look like brownie mix.
Drop by spoonfuls onto a hot waffle iron. You can make these really small for the tiny people or larger. Cook 1 min or less depending on size. This is fast, don't burn these. Take a wooden pick to gently lift these out an onto a cooling rack. They are wonderful warm. Dust with powdered sugar or let them cool a bit and put a dot of frosting in the center. Add pecans for that turtle effect. Your choice. Do these as you find fun. I got 21 medium Turtles from this batch

Yumm! We've made these quite often. We almost made them for this last Monday's family home evening...but....the child was acting out and treats were reserved for another night! We all like them!
