Coconut Macaroons


Need a quick, easy, and nice looking treat to deliver to friends, family and even the mailman on St. Patrick’s Day? Then here’s one.

Coconut Macaroons
yield 36
Stir together in large bowl until combined.
2/3 c Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 Egg White
1 ½ tsp Vanilla Extract
1/8 tsp Salt

Now stir in until blended:
3/12 C Flaked Sweetened Coconut

Drop the dough by tablespoonfuls onto lined cookie sheets about 2 inches apart. Bake at 325ºF until golden brown, 20 to 24 minutes. Let stand for a minute or two and then remove to rack to cool. I added a drop or two of green food coloring for St. Patrick’s Day. These would also be cute with some jelly beans for Easter. Make these they taste like Spring.

What a cute little package. You are so clever to think of dying macaroons.
