Magic Cookies

Featured Food Storage/Pantry Item: Sweetened condensed milk I just recently discovered that sweetened condensed milk is a vital pantry storage item. It is now on my list of pantry staples.

I am usually skeptical when things are titled "magical." But these cookies truly do have magical powers. Not the deliciously tasty but diet friendly kind of magical or even the low in sugar but still yummy kind of magical but they do have a magical quality. They are neither lowfat or low sugar. Let's just say you are slammed with stuff to do when you suddenly remember you have to come up with treats for 13 hungry 8 to 10-year-old girls and you have no time to cook or run to the store. In such a quandary, this is a magical recipe. It literally takes 5 minutes to prep and 30 minutes to bake. There is no mixing at all. It requires the complicated skill to layer ingredients in a pan. Magically done and magically yummy.

1/4 cup of butter, melted

1 cup of crushed graham crackers, vanilla wafers or in my case those chocolate filled wafers

1 cup of coconut

1 cup of milk chocolate or semi sweet chocolate chips

1 cup of peanut butter or butterscotch chips

1 can of sweetened condensed milk

I suggest spraying the sides of a 9x13 pan with cooking spray or you will have sticking problems.

Heat oven to 350 degrees

Layer ingredients in pan in order listed. Bake for 30 minutes. Let cool and cut into squares.

Did you know that you can make your own sweetened condensed milk using powdered milk? I no longer stock the canned stuff as I have plenty of powdered milk to use!
