Magic Cookies

You know those Magic Bars that appear every Christmas season?  Graham cracker base, sweetened condensed milk, with coconut, nuts and chocolate chips on top?  YUM!  What a wonderful treat!  Well, I have no idea where I got this recipe from, but I've been making them for several years now and they are always well received.  If you like Magic Bars, you'll love Magic Cookies....and the good news is...that these are a year-round treat!

Magic Cookies

1-1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
½ cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
½ cup softened margarine or butter
1-1/3 cup flaked coconut
1 pkg (12 oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts

In a small bowl, mix graham cracker crumbs, flour and baking powder.  In a large mixing bowl, beat sweetened condensed milk and margarine until smooth.  Add graham crumb mixture; mix well.  Stir in coconut, chocolate chips and nuts.  Drop by tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake in 375 degree oven for 9 to 10 minutes, or until lightly browned.  Yield:  3 dozen.
