Tasty Recipe - Simple Coconut Macaroons

Coconut Macaroons are sweet & delicious.  We usually have them at Christmas-time, but they're good all year! :)

One 14 oz bag of Sweetened Coconut Flakes
 1 can of Sweetened Condensed Milk
 2 tsp. Vanilla Extract

 Mix well in large bowl. Carefully place spoonfuls onto GREASED cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Tips of coconut will be light brown. Remove from cookie sheet immediately using a wet spatula.  They will be sticky at first, but will harden as they rest.

*You can also top Macaroons with sprinkles, candied cherries, finely chopped nuts, or mix in small chocolate chips before baking.
