Pheonix Cookies

A couple weeks ago, I had a cookie failure. Someone gave me a cookie mix, which I used (because I didn't want it to go to waste) but the resultant cookies were too sugary and too hard. I didn't like 'em and didn't give them to anyone except to my two wedding houseguests, with my apologies. They didn't much like them either. One of them, Jen A to be precise, suggested I put them in the food processor and make them into cookie crumbs and reuse them for something else.

Jen, you're brilliant.

I reduced them to cookie crumbs and put them in the freezer to wait for the next opportunity. Yesterday, I used them instead of graham cracker crumbs as the base for "magic bars" (aka Seven Layer Cookies). I used the recipe on the back of the Bordens Sweetened Condensed Milk (substituted in some milk chocolate chips I had hanging around and coconut flakes instead of shredded coconut) and...
Ta Da! Yummy Cookies!


Now these, I'm reluctant to share because I want to eat them all myself, but I think I will anyway. ;)

Before this was 'death on a plate' for me, I loved these bar cookies.

Wow! Why is it that when I don't follow a recipe exactly the final outcome is inedible? I swear that if I had used the same ingredients as you did, my cookies would've been yucky.
