Holiday Cheer - Seven Layer Cookies

The first time I had these cookies was at a goodie exchange at my church. I have to admit, it took me a couple of years to finally ask for the recipe and am I sure glad I did.  These are a holiday staple in my house.  They are VERY rich, but well worth the extra ten pounds you gain just by looking at them.  Enjoy!

Seven Layer Cookies


1/2 cup margarine
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 cup flaked coconut
6 ounces butterscotch chips
6 ounces chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1 can sweetened condensed milk


Melt margarine and put in 13x9 pan. Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs over margarine. Spread flaked coconut over crumbs. Pour butterscotch bits over coconut. Pour chocolate chips over butterscotch bits. Sprinkle chopped nuts over all. Slowly pour sweetened condensed milk over all. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

Struggling between the promise of the present and the hurts of the past, can Jacob and Tessa overcome their pain long enough to discover a gift beyond all measure?

I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.

Yum! I'd have to replace the coconut, but I bet it wouldn't be hard finding a delicious subsitute. Off to see what other recipes you have! Thanks for sharing.
