Graham Cracker Cookies

This is my story, and I'm sticking to it----this recipe has dairy in it, and protein and fruit and nuts and grains.  Sounds healthy, huh?  But it's also guaranteed to help you put on 5 pounds--and worth every ounce!  This is one of Grandma Bateman's recipes.  The hardest part is letting it sit several hours (overnight is best) before having a piece.
I'm going to give more detailed directions than normal so that the filling will turn out properly for you.  The original recipe assumes the cook is comfortable with a white sauce-type mixture.  Hopefully this will help avoid lumps in the cooked filling.  (Terry)

Place 1 C sugar and 1 Tb flour in a saucepan and stir together. 
Stir in 1/3 C evaporated milk.
Add 1 beaten egg and whisk well.
Add 1 cube butter, cut into pieces.
Mix these ingredients together and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.:

Remove from heat and add:
1 C chopped nuts, 1 C coconut, 1 C crushed graham cracker crumbs, 2 tp vanilla.

Line a 9x13 pan with graham crackers.  Spread filling over crackers.  Cover with another layer of graham crackers.  Press down firmly with hand.

Icing:  Mix together and spread on top of crackers:  1 egg, 2 C powdered sugar, 2 tp vanilla, 2 TB butter.

Cover.  Refrigerate for several hours or overnight.  Cut into squares to serve.
