Magic 7 Layer Cookie Basic Recipe

Easy to make and tastes great

Take this recipe from the label (Bordens Eagle Brand of sweetened condensed milk) and change out the graham crackers with any of the Effie's Biscuits and make it much better. You can also mix Effie's Biscuits with the graham crackers and still get the flavor, plus the extra crunch. The Pecan Cakes are perfect; the Oatcakes are always great to crumble on a fruit crisp, and the Cocoa Cakes work perfectly with chocolate recipes. 

instructions:

#1: Heat the oven to 350º F. Coat the 13x9 inch baking pan

#2: Combine the graham cracker crumbs and melted butter in a bowl. Press into the bottom of the backing dish.

#3: Pour the sweetened condensed milk evenly over the crumb mixture.

#4: Layer the coconut, chocolate and nuts over the condensed milk. Press down the mixture with a fork.

#5: Bake 25 to 30 minutes until golden brown. There will be a change in the smell as you bake it -- that is a good time to pull from the oven.

#6: Cool the pan on a wire rack or the stove top. Run a knife around the edge to release from the sides. Cut when cool into perfect shapes of your choice.

#7: Eat. Warning it is possible to eat the whole thing!
