Author Notes

After cooling sheet pan may be frozen.  Bar cookies can then be removed in a slab then cut into squares.
Leftovers 7 layer cookies: After I am done with all of my cookies I put all of my leftover ingredients and broken cookies onto this crust and cover with the sweetened condensed milk and bake as above.  It is a great way to use everything up!
