They look like little cookie clouds, especially when I add random food coloring to the batter, but everyone else you know probably calls them coconut macaroons. To that I say: boring! But whatever you wanna call 'em, I call my recipe darn yummy. And the best part? Super simple. Another bonus? I can tell you from experience that they keep [stay soft] for quite awhile and ship really well, too. Yes little cookies, you get an A++ from me!
Easy Coconut Macaroons
[Sorry, no idea where these bad boys came from!]
2 ½ c. flaked coconut
¾ c. flour
1/8 tsp. salt
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk [fat free works just as well as regular here]
1 ½ tsp. almond extract
Toss coconut, flour and salt together. Stir in sweetened condensed milk and extract. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 3 inches apart onto greased cookie sheets. Bake at 300F for 18-22 minutes. Makes 32 cookies.
Can't get much simpiler than this, and for anyone out there who loves coconut --- these are a must! And don'tcha just love how shiny they get? Enjoy!
