Hello Dolly Cookies






When any of the Harris girls find a new recipe they are quick to share the good news. Jill made these cookies, sent me an e-mail and said they were her new favorite cookie. Amber made them and raved about them. She even told Candise that it just might be worth being sick one day to experience these cookies (Candise has just discovered that gluten containing foods make her quite ill).
With so many good reviews I had to make them. Yes, they are delicious. They are a cookie form of the ever favorite 7 Layer Bar, Magic Cookie Bar or as we called them Hello Dollies. They are full of yummy ingredients and they contain no eggs so the dough is fair game--and it is yummy. Enjoy! These cookies are inspired by a recipe on one of my favorite blogs, Mel's Kitchen Cafe

Hello Dolly Cookies
1 ½ cup graham cracker crumbs
½ cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 14 ounce can of sweetened condensed milk
½ cup butter, softened
1 1/3 cups coconut
1 ½ cups chocolate chips
1 cup walnuts or pecans coarsely chopped
Mix together graham cracker crumbs, flour and baking powder. In bowl of mixer beat butter and sweetened condensed milk until smooth. Add cracker mixture, mix well. Stir in nuts, coconut and chocolate chips. Bake at 350 for 13 minutes. Cookies will set up as they cool.

Cindy, I'm so excited to try this recipe with my girls this weekend. You had me at graham cracker crumbs, but with the addition of the coconut and condensed milk I was ready to "put a ring on it".

This sounds wonderful!! Love the ingredients and the pics looks great!! As far as the chicken and mushrooms are concerned - yes extra chicken broth instead of wine would work well!

Thanks...keep them coming...cookies are something that are consumed by the guys daily here...Mark has always eaten them for breakfast...in 34 years of marriage I have never known him to eat anything for breakfast M-F except for a handful of cookies...so all your recipes are appreciated. Thanks!
