7 Layer Cookie bars
from Elizabethan Desserts
Come birthdays or holidays I've always been pretty difficult
to buy a gift for but my mom and I worked out an arrangement.
Mom would whip-up a batch of 7 layer cookie bars, pack them in
a tin container and mail 'em to me. Seven layer cookie bars also
go by the names "magic bars" and "hello dolly
bars". Pretty simple ingredients: butter, graham cracker
crumbs, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, coconuts, pecans
and a can of condensed milk. Head 25 miles up the coast from
San Diego and you'll be in Encinitas, an easy-going beach town
of 50,000 inhabitants. The biggest single industry in Encinitas
is the growing of ornamental flowers, more specifically that
popular Christmas-time beauty--the pointsettia. So, tucked amidst
the grounds of Sunshine
Garden Nursery is where one finds Elizabethan Desserts. The
7 layer cookie bars are unbelievably
good---the BEST I've ever had! The bars are rich, thick, with
a somewhat gooey center and overflowing with delectable ingredients.
The unusual location isn't
the easiest place to find
but, it's worth the effort. Website: www.elizabethandesserts.com.
