The Christmas challenge is almost finished. Today's topic: Favorite Cookie Recipe. I love to bake so it was really hard for me to narrow it down to one recipe. This recipe is one I make frequently at Christmas and is always a hit.
I wish I could say that I invented this recipe, but I did not. It comes directly from the Eagle Brand Cookies & Treats cookbook my mama gave me years ago. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
Double Delicious Cookie Bars
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 (14-oz) can condensed milk
2 cups (12-oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips*
1 cup (6-oz) peanut butter chips*
(*Any flavor of chips can be substituted in any combination; I always use butterscotch chips instead of peanut butter and have substituted white chocolate chips too)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (325 for glass dish). In 13x9-inch baking pan, melt butter in oven.
2. Sprinkle crumbs evenly over butter; pour condensed milk over crumbs. Top with remaining ingredients (chips) and press down firmly.
3. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely and cut into bars. Store covered at room temperature. Makes 24 to 36 bars.
(* These are incredibly rich so I recommend cutting them into small squares. A little bit goes a long ways!)
