Layered Cookie Mix
(From The Homemaker's Forum Vol. 3, #6 by Sarah Horton) This cookie mix, layered in a quart jar, makes a great "teacher", grandma, or "hostess" gift. My children love making this mix and we have received many requests for this recipe. Layer ingredients in a quart sized canning jar in the following order: 1 cup chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts) 1 - 6 oz. package semi-sweet chocolate morsels 1 cup Butterscotch chips 1 cup flaked coconut 1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (in a separate bag on top of other layers) To give as a gift, place the lid on the jar and cut a piece of fabric in a circle which is several inches larger than the jar lid. Pinking shears make a nice edge. Secure the fabric to the lid with a rubber band. Attach the directions for baking the cookies to the jar with a ribbon or raffia. Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees (or 325 if using a glass dish). In a 13x9 inch baking pan, melt 1/2 cup butter. Sprinkle crumbs over butter. Top with remaining contents of jar. Press down firmly. Pour one can sweetened condensed milk over all. Bake 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool thoroughly before cutting into bars. Loosely cover any leftovers. Makes about 36 bars.
