It’s that time of year! Expect an email with subject: Cookie Exchange! to pop-up in the INBOX. Do not leap back in fear as one does from email chain letters that promise certain death (sent from you favourite Aunt). Instead be the first to say YES, I will do it. Cookie exchanges are actually a lot of fun and if you make these simple 7-Layer squares (errr..cookies) your end of the deal will be sealed and sliced in no time. No flour involved.
If you can layer things like shredded coconut (notice a child doing it)..
or chocolate chips….
and drizzle with condensed milk (you may need to know how to open a can at this point)
You can end up with this….
All these pics are pulled from more specific directions on my Family Fun blog for foodnetwork.ca. Just click HERE to go there for the recipe. If you have a non stick pan that is the best way to go, but I just used a ceramic casserole dish.
And I’d love to hear if there are any classic 7 layer (or 5 layer or 9 layer) cookies in your holiday repertoire!
