Makes about 3 dozen cookies.

Note: From Theresa Neely of Maplewood. For years, Neely would bake Seven Layer Bars as a Christmas treat for her daughter, mailing them cross-country. “About five years ago, while attending a church picnic, I came across this cookie and fell in love with it,” she wrote. “This cookie traveled very well and has now become her favorite cookie of the season.”
