Chewy Coconut Macaroons Recipe

Chewy Coconut Macaroons Recipe

These chewy cookies are my husband's favorites, so he requests them often. I like to make the macaroons on cold winter days and keep them in an airtight bowl on the kitchen counter


2-1/2 cups sweetened shredded coconut

3/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/8 teaspoon salt

1 can (14 ounces) fat-free sweetened condensed milk

1-1/2 teaspoons almond extract


In a bowl, toss the coconut, flour and salt. Stir in milk and extract until blended (mixture will be thick and sticky).

Drop by level tablespoons 3 in. apart on lightly greased baking sheets. Bake at 300° for 18-22 minutes or just until golden brown. Cool for 2 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Yield: 32 cookies.
