Raspberry Zinger Recipe

We have recently started a love affair with sweetened condensed milk.  It all started here and after devouring that tray of yumminess, I realized we could make our favorite treats from the restaurant up the street.  Whole World, a little vegetarian restaurant just up the block from our house, has several delicious baked goods, but Chris and I almost always choose the raspberry zinger bar cookie.  It is a tasty mix of raspberry, chocolate and coconut.   I had searched for the recipe, but couldn't find it by that name.  So I made it up!  And it is pretty close and worth sharing.

Raspberry Bar Cookies

9 crushed graham crackers
3 tbspn butter, melted
seedless raspberry jam
1/2 can of sweetened condensed milk
chocolate chips
shredded coconut

Crush the crackers and mix in the melted butter.  Press into square greased pan (I used a 9x9).  Cover with a layer of raspberry jam.  Sprinkle coconut and a few chocolate chips over jam.  Pour half can of condensed milk over the top.  Sprinkle on more coconut and chocolate chips.  Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.  Enjoy.  (Sorry about the lack of a picture - they were eaten too quickly to photograph.)
