 Cream butter with sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, egg yolk,  
 vanilla and maple flavoring. Set aside. Sift together flour, salt, and  
 baking soda. Add dry ingredients gradually to the creamed mixture until  
 you have smooth dough and then chill 2 hours. Shape 1 ts dough into 
 balls.  These should be oval shaped like a turtle body. Dip bottoms into 
 little of  egg white. Press slightly onto greased cookie sheet on which 
 groups of 5 pecan halves  have already been placed to form a head and 4 
 feet of turtles. Bake at  350~ 10 to 12 minutes or until set and when 
 cool, frost. FROSTING-Melt chocolate, milk and butter. Beat in the 
 powdered sugar until  smooth. Source: Gloria Pitzer’s Secret Recipes
