Seven Layer Cookie Bars

Hey Everybody! Here's a yummy favorite holiday recipe from Katie, our mama of the week. I made these last night! Easy, quick, and tasty.

Favorite Family Recipe:

It's actually a yummy dessert that I discovered in one of my (Katie) grandma's cookbooks (after she passed away in January, my mom let me have a bunch of her cookbooks and I have enjoyed cooking/baking even more since!)  
7 layer bars

Put these layers in order in a square 9" pan

1/3 c melted butter

1 pkg graham crackers (crushed)

1 cup flaked coconut

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 cup butterscotch chips

1 cup crushed pecans

1 can of sweetened condensed milk poured over the top evenly

Bake at 325 for 33 minutes.  It's absolutely amazing.

I also asked Katie how we could pray for them this week, and here's what she said...

3 ways to pray for us:

1. Pray for as smooth as a ride as possible through the adoption process.

2. Pray for us to have safe travels as we take a whirlwind tour of the midwest to see family and friends for Christmas.

3. Pray for Katie to get a permanent teaching position (instead of all this long-term subbing!).

Thanks for the recipe share, Katie! Have all of you given to the Harshmans this week? The week is coming to a close, so get the word out! Being obedient to God's call to adopt is not always easy and it takes a giant leap of faith to sign on to a $30,000 commitment when all that money is simply not there. That's where we come in. We're supposed to use the money that God has entrusted to each of us to take care of the Whole Church. Including the Harshmans. And including their new little boy. We're the hands and feet, folks. Let's really lift them up here in the final stretch!
