Seven Layer Squares are really sweet, almost more of a candy than a cookie. A condy or a caakie. Okay I’ll stop. Just ’cause they’re sweet doesn’t mean you shouldn’t make them because they are one of the richest and sublimely sweet and textury (new word I just coined) caakies ever . . .
1. Layer One: melt 1 stick of butter in an 11 x 7 glass pan. I just put a stick of butter in the glass pan and turned on the oven to preheat to 325 degrees. Next step: graham cracker crumbs.
2. Layer Two: add 1 cup graham cracker crumbs. If you have the graham crackers, just seal in a zip lock type bag and press with a rolling pin until crushed. About 12 squares make 1 cup crumbs. Then sprinkle on evenly over the melted butter. Press down with a spatula.
3. Layer Three: spread 1 cup of chocolate chips.
4. Layer Four: sprinkle on 1 cup coconut.
5. Layer Five: add one cup of butterscotch chips.
6. Layer Six: pour one can of sweetened condensed milk over the top. I save a little and pour the rest over the nut layer — coming up next.
7. Layer Seven: you can add a cup of walnuts or pecans. Drizzle remaining sweetened condensed milk over top. Add anything else that you like. Add another layer or two . . .but I’m done.
Bake at 325 for 25 – 30 minutes. Then cool and cut into bars. I pressed down lightly with a spatula to even out the top and compress the mixture.
