Low Country Cookies

So here's the recipe of some good cookies on Suzy's request :) I got this recipe from the Food Network website couple of years ago. It's very fast and very easy to make (no baking required).

Prep Time: 15 minutes 
Inactive Prep Time: 30 minutes 
Cook Time: 10 minutes 
Yield: 15 to 20 servings
1 (16-ounce) box graham crackers 
12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) butter 
1 cup sugar 
1 egg 
1/2 cup milk 
1 cup chopped pecans 
1 cup or 3 (1/2-ounce) cans shredded coconut 
2 cups powdered sugar 
1 teaspoon vanilla 
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter (softened)
3 tablespoons milk
For the filling: Line a 13 by 9-inch pan with whole graham crackers. Melt the butter in saucepan and add sugar. Beat the egg and milk together; add to butter mixture. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add the nuts, coconut, and 1 cup graham cracker crumbs. Pour over the crackers in the pan. Cover with another layer of whole graham crackers. 
For the topping: Beat all the ingredients together and spread over top layer of crackers. 
Chill. Cut into squares.
