1/2 teaspoon salt
Pecan halves and chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream shortening and sugar; beat in egg yolks and vanilla.

Add sifted flour and salt.

Roll teaspoons of dough into balls. Flatten out slightly and push 4 pecan halves into cookies to look like legs of a turtle.

Stick in another pecan half for head.

Bake about 12 minutes or until set.

Immediately place 4 or 5 chocolate chips on top of each cookie.

When softened, spread to cover cookie.
