Mckenzie's Bakery Turtle Cookies

If your from New Orleans you remember Mckenzie's. They had the best deserts the town had ever tasted. Whenever they went out of business in 2001, people became really upset (I heard some even cried). Many of their recipes are still secret but there are a few which have either been replicated or stolen. I've been to a handful of countries and around 45 of the states, and have yet to eat a desert than was made better than Mckenzie's did it. I found this site in hopes of locating some of their recipes (like Petit Fours) but was surprised that I couldn't find ONE of their recipes.
