Happy Anniversary to My Blog!
My Friday was blissfully mundane. I started class at my usual 8am time slot, then spent a few hours in my second home (a.k.a. the Journalism building) before my three hour Resource Center shift. The Arts Collateral had its very own destressing event for Lafayette residents, so I got to spent an hour doing one of my favorite things...baking cupcakes. As for this evening, I spent it wth my Brooklyn babies eating pizza and watching Harry Potter movies. It may not seem so out of the ordinary, but for me it was just the tiny break I nereded a I gear upo for finals week.
Oh. One last thing, as I was going through my "archives," I noticed I never included my alltime favorite Christmas cookie recipe. They're called Seven Layer Cookies, and for our family, no special event would be complete without them. They're quite tasty and super simple.
1/4 lb. butter
1 c. crushed graham crackers
1 c. angel flakes coconut
1 pkg. Nestle chocolate chips (6 oz.)
1 pkg. Nestle butterscotch chips (6 oz.)
1 can sweetened condensed milk, NOT evaporated milk
1 c. walnuts meats, chopped
Melt butter in an 9 x 13 inch pan. Add layer by layer (do not mix) above ingredients in order listed.
Bake 32 minutes at 350 degrees in an aluminum pan OR 28 minutes at 350 degrees if a glass dish is used. Cut into bars when cool. ENJOY!
**Note, because of the way most of these ingredients are packaged, I usually make two at a time. If you're doing that, just buy an additional can of sweetened, condensed milk and have an extra stick of butter on hand.
