Coconut Macaroons

This recipe for chewy macaroons was given to me by a friend. They indeed are chewy and delicious and very easy to bake up a batch for an afternoon treat with a cup of coffee.
  • 3 cups coconut, angel flake is my preference
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can (300 ml) sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  1. Combine coconut, flour and salt.
  2. Stir in milk and vanilla.
  3. Drop from a tbsp onto a greased or parchment lined baking pan.
  4. Bake in a 325ยบ for 18 minutes or until golden in color.
