German Chocolate Chip Cookies

A friend gave me this recipe thirteen years ago.  It quickly became one of my personal favorites.  I am ashamed to admit that when my children were small, I didn't always share with them.  My husband often worked long hours and I often ate all the cookies.  When it came to these particular cookies, I had absolutely no self control whatsoever.  I blame it on the sweetened condensed milk.  
Having a lot of teenagers in the house is a definite help in dieting.  Now it's their turn not to share.  And I am okay with that.  These cookies are still a favorite.

German Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs (1 of those packages of crackers thrown in the food processor is usually the correct amount)
1/2 cup flour (can use whole wheat, spelt, all purpose, rye or whatever)
2 tsp baking powder
1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup softened butter
1 1/2 cup flaked coconut
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup finely chopped walnuts or pecans
Mix graham cracker crumbs, flour and baking powder. In another bowl, beat condensed milk and butter until smooth. Mix all together, then add coconut, chips and walnuts. Slightly grease cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 9 to 10 minutes until light brown.
