Eleanor's 7 Layer Cookies

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.

How to Make Eleanor's 7 Layer Cookies


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