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.


  1. I would make this but think it may be dangerous to eat the entire batch myself... (Share some with the neighbors???)

  2. These sound so yummy. We have made these but melted chocolate chips and dipped them and called them Almond Mounds. We have also put an almond in the middle and called them Joys. I think we saw this on Paula Dean or somewhere like that.They were YUMMY!
