Eleanor was my mother and these amazing treats were my favorite! I recently made a batch for a gathering and they are just as delicious as I remembered. And couldn't be easier to make.
The amounts are approximate. Just use the bags of chips and walnuts from the bakery section of your grocery store.

Ingredients

  • 1 stick
    butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 c
    graham cracker crumbs
  • 14 oz
    bag of sweetened shredded coconut
  • 12 oz
    bag of butterscotch chips
  • 12 oz
    bag of chocolate chips (either semi-sweet or milk chocolate)
  • 12 oz
    bag of chopped walnuts

    can of sweetened condensed milk

How to Make Eleanor's 7 Layer Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Melt the stick of butter in a 9x13 pan - I use a glass pyrex pan. Spread across the bottom and up the sides with a pastry brush.
  3. Sprinkle the graham cracker crumbs evenly across the bottom of the pan and let them absorb the butter.
  4. Next evenly distribute the coconut, then the butterscotch chips, followed by the chocolate chips and finally the walnuts pieces.
  5. Drizzle the whole can of condensed milk across the entire pan, then bake for 30 minutes or until the top is slightly browned and bubbling.
  6. Allow to cool completely on a rack, then cut into squares.
