Coconut Macaroons

Sometimes you feel like a nut and sometimes ya don't!
Today is Sunday and I felt like I needed to bake something.
Looked in the pantry and had coconut, flour (always have flour), Sweetened condensed milk....So it was Either Coconut Flan or Macaroons..My sister Loves Coconut..and was thinking of her so.. Macaroons!
They are beautiful, tasty and the easiest thing to make on this earth!
Here's the recipe. See if you agree.

Coconut Macaroons


2/3 cup Flour
14 oz Sweetened Flaked Coconut
1/4 tsp Salt
2 tsp Vanilla
14 oz Can sweetened Condensed Milk


Combine in mixing bowl, Flour Coconut and Salt. Combine well.
Combine in a separate bowl Condensed Milk and Vanilla.

Pour Milk mixture into bowl with coconut mixture and combine well.
Refrigerate Mixture for 1 hour.

Preheat Oven to 350° f
Line Baking Sheet with parchment.

Use an ice cream scoop or 2 teaspoons to spoon even mounds of dough onto parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake @ 350° f for 15 minutes. (exactly) They may seem soft when coming out of the oven.
When they cool, they'll be the right consistency. Chewy and sweet Just like you know.
