Imperial sugar introduced this as a Father’s Day recipe, but I couldn’t wait until June 16th to serve them! Seven Layer Bars are one of my favorite cookies of all time, and this version is made with a salty pretzel crust, cashews, coconut, chocolate & butterscotch chips and mixture of cream and two kinds of […]

Magic Cookie Bar Brownies

There are tons of methods you could use, but today I came up with two ways of combining Magic Cookie Bars (aka Seven Layer Bars) with brownies. First, the lazy version — brownies topped with a flat layer of graham crackers, condensed milk, chips and nuts. And second, the more time consuming brownie composed of […]

Oat, Chocolate Chip, Butterscotch Bars

If you like Seven Layer Bars, Hello Dollies and Magic Cookie Bars but find them a little too sweet, here’s an alternative. Adapted from a recipe called Chocolate ‘N Oat Bars, this one is originally from Smucker’s, but with a few little changes. Because I had an open bag of butterscotch chips, I threw in […]

Five Layer Bars

I’ve always been a little uptight about Seven Layer Bars, the cookies where you melt the butter directly in the pan, sprinkle graham cracker crumbs over the butter, pour milk directly over the crumbs, etc. etc. I love the concept but always worry I’ll burn the butter (because one time I did) and that …

If you …

As promised, here’s the recipe from this morning. I’d intended to make regular Seven Layer Bars, but I felt kind of low in calcium so I replaced the usual graham crackers with Barnum’s animal crackers. Okay, so I’m still probably going to need Boniva in a few years, but the animal cracker crust was pretty […]

If there’s a Magic Cookie Bar quota to be met in this lifetime, it’s been met here at Ginsberg Central. So with apologies to Eagle Brand, this will be my last Magic Cookie Bar for a while. Maybe. But for those of you who are now craving them, here’s a recipe. This is one that […]

This recipe is a bit strange, but if you love Magic Cookie Bars or as they are sometimes called, Hello Dollies, it’s worth a try. Instead of a base of graham cracker crumbs, these bars have a base of cookies. In this case, Fruit Newtons. I’ve never used the fig version as …
