If you remember, please describe a McKenzie Bakery turtle. Would you call the bottom a "sugar cookie" or is there a better description? And the chocolate on top -- was it cake icing?

The cookie was sorta like a short bread cookie...
Deep dark chocolate icing with a pecan hidden under the icing..
Not one of my favorite things from McKenzie's... didn't care for the cookie!

My favorite there was the Chocolate Mousse Pie.

The bottom was more buttery than a sugar cookie - I don't know how to describe it, kind of like the cookies called Pecan Sandies (which I guess I haven't had in years either). And the chocolate was very close to icing, but maybe more dense. They were one of my top three favorites, the others being Belgian Slices (a rectangle pecan ice box cookie) and Pineapple Upside Down Cupcakes (a pecan half and cherry half included with the pineapple).

Belgian Slices are the item I miss the most from McKenzie's. We would buy several packs at at time. Does anyone know how to make them?

Lady, I always thought the Belgian Slices were very similar to my Aunt Lil's Ice Box Cookies. I'll post the recipe later when I get on the computer. In fact, it's in my cookbook, Cafe Sassone. Link to the right.

Oops I forgot! I was out of town, but I'm back. I'll post it in Recipes.
