Have you already come down with a case of the Pillsbury Fever?  The only remedy – an awesome blog giveaway.  From now through the end of the first submission period, we are giving away this vintage Pillsbury Bake-Off prize package.

Over 60 years ago “Snappy Turtle Cookies” became an instant classic.  The story behind this historic win and more tales from the 4th Grand National (a.k.a. Pillsbury Bake-Off) can be found at  “The Culinary Cellar

Bake Off 4 Snappy Turtle Cookies finished

4.8 from 4 reviews
Snappy Turtle Cookies
 
Ingredients
  • Cookies:
  • ½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup margarine or butter, softened
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla
  • ⅛ teaspoon imitation maple flavor, if desired
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg, separated
  • 1½ cups all purpose or unbleached flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup pecan halves, split lengthwise
  • Frosting:
  • ⅓ cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon margarine or butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
Instructions
  1. In large bowl, combine brown sugar and ½ cup margarine; beat until light and fluffy. Add vanilla, maple flavor, 1 whole egg and 1 egg yolk; beat well.
  2. Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt; mix well. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate about 1 hour for easier handling.
  3. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease cookie sheets. Arrange pecan pieces in groups of 5 on greased cookie sheets to resemble head and legs of turtle. In small bowl, beat egg white. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Dip bottoms in beaten egg white; press lightly onto pecans. (Tips of pecans should show).
  4. Bake at 350°F. for 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheets. Cool 15 minutes or until completely cooled.
  5. In small saucepan, combine chocolate chips, milk and 1 tablespoon margarine; cook over low heat, stirring constantly until melted and smooth. Remove from heat; stir in powdered sugar. If necessary, add additional powdered sugar for desired spreading consistency. Frost cooled cookies. Let frosting set before storing. Store in tightly covered container.

I was thrilled when I found these items at an antique store in Los Angeles.  The vintage ad is perfect for framing (9 by 12) and the cookbook is a great addition to any Pillsbury Bake-Off collection.

    My FAVORITE Pillsbury product is the peanut butter cookie dough. They may the best cookies in a snap, and easy to add fun ingredients to, to amp the flavor even more!

    I love the Pillsbury Orange Rolls. I used to always fix them when my mother came to visit (and other times as well). She was pleased that I remembered they were her favorites too!

    My favorite Pillsbury product used to be their Bluberry Biscuits, but since they did away with them, I’ll have to go with the basic cinnamon rolls.
