7-Layer Cookies

Reading the posts about 7-layer salad elsewhere reminded me of this recipe:

Melt 1 stick butter in 9x13 pan. Add 1 to 1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs. Mix and spread to cover bottom of pan, press down with spatula.

Layer over graham crackers these ingredients, in the following order, in amounts to cover surface:
shredded coconut
chocolate chips
butterscotch chips
chopped nuts

Pour 1 can sweetened condensed milk over top; bake for 30 minutes at 350.

Let it cool before cutting into squares.

Mudbug...I have been making this for yrs...probably the first thing I learned to bake...I always refer to it as the Idiot Cookie! I say call it what you want but everyone loves it....

To cut easily chill in refrig or even freezer first and or line pan w/foil.

My Mom used to make them all the time when I was a kid. I may have to make some myself to just to remind myself of what they were like.

Is there anything I could use to replace the coconut? Can I just omit it altogether? Coconut happens to be one of about 5 (mainstream) things I don't like.
