You know that time of day... for me it's about 3:00pm.
The kids are about to come home from school, everyone is getting hungry, you have no idea what to make for dinner, you realize that you could use a treat?
I try not to do this too often, but sometimes I just need a tasty, sugary pick-me-up.
Sometimes it's a handful of chocolate chips.
Sometimes a yogurt.
Sometimes an apple.
But as the weekend draws near, I get a little more crazy.
My weekend treats almost always involve chocolate...
brownies, ice cream, chocolate chip cookies,
or these 7 layer cookies.
Some version of these cookies is undoubtedly in every cookbook in your kitchen.
This recipe, the one my mom used to make, is my favorite.
7 Layer Cookies
1/2 stick or 1/4 cup butter
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 pkg chocolate chips
1 pkg butterscotch chips
1 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 can sweetened condensed milk
Preheat oven to 350.
Spray the edges of a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray.
Melt butter in pan or microwave.
Using a fork, mix with graham cracker crumbs to form a crust.
Sprinkle chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, coconut, and walnuts.
Pour sweetened condensed milk over everything.
Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
Cut while warm.
If you've never tried these, do it! They bake up in a cinch.
You can thank me later.
