When I posted this picture on Facebook and Twitter over the weekend, everyone kept asking me for the recipe. So I knew I couldn’t wait to publish just a single post with all of my favorite Christmas Cookie recipes – I had to get this recipe out ASAP! So here it goes: a family tradition, Gluten Free Seven Layer Cookies.
– GF Graham Cracker Crumbs
– Butterscotch Chips
– Chocolate Chips
– Coconut Flakes
– Sweetened Condensed Milk
Wondering what the 7th layer is? You and me both! My family has called these cookies 7 layer cookies since before I can remember – and somehow, we managed to overlook the fact that there are only 6 layers to these tasty treats. Either way, they’re delicious and I am more than willing to move past that minor naming oversight if you are 😉
How to put it all together:
Melt 1 stick of butter. Pour the butter into a greased baking pan. Pour a layer of graham cracker crumbs on top. If you don’t have any graham cracker crumbs (I have a hard time finding them in stores so I purchase mine online), try crushing some cookies and use those as your base layer. I like Annie’s GF Ginger Bunnies or GF Ginger snaps for crusts.
Once you have your bottom layer, sprinkle some coconut flakes, butterscotch chips and chocolate chips on top. Don’t be afraid to be generous with each topping! I promise, the more you layer on, the tastier the cookie! Then, pour a layer of Sweetened Condensed Milk on top.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Then enjoy!
