Coconut Macaroons

 Let me tell you a little secret about Shay…I am Coconut Macaroon OBSESSED.  
I would rather have a macaroon than a cookie or brownie any day of the week.  Love, love, love them!  
I’m not sure why it has taken me so long to blog about these treats…trust me, if you’re a macaroon person, you will flip over how simple this little recipe Taste of Home recipe is.  Make them today coconut lovers.  Today.
Shopping List
5 1/2 cups sweetened flaked coconut
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 (14 oz) can of sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Spray your cookie sheet with Pam or line it with parchment paper.  Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine coconut and flour with a wooden spoon.  Stir in your salt, milk and vanilla.
Drop by the two tablespoons full on to your parchment paper. 
Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly brown and toasted.
Remove from oven and serve either warm or room temp.
This recipe should make about 1 1/2 dozen macaroons.

I just really, really, really love a macaroon.

    I'm so excited to make these. I totally agree with you on loving these more than brownies or cookies. I can't wait to make your coconut bundt cake too! Coconut just screams spring/summer!

    Yum! Everyone is so French macaron obsessed right now, we forget about the good old macaroons. xo

    Easiest and yummiest recipe ever. I could eat them before baking.

    Hi Shay,

    I tried this recipe tonight and baked mine on parchment paper. Mine turned out pretty like a cookie and not nearly as round/fluffy as yours. Do you have any suggestions of what I may have done wrong?

    I love your blogs and I appreciate all the yummy recipes you share! 🙂

    Did you accidentally use too much flour? Or not enough coconut? When you dropped them on your parchment paper, they should have been big coconut mounds (they shouldn't have looked anything like a cookie!). You didn't use a mixer did you? Hmmmm…I'm trying to figure out what happened?!?

    Made these for my hubby's 80 year old grandma and mailed them to her for Mother's Day. She said they were the best macaroons she ever had and wondered why I hadn't included the recipe!

    Another great coconut recipe! Great job!

    the same thing happened to mine! they spread out to big cookies and ran together even though I followed the recipe exactly. They still taste great, but didn't turn out in macaroon form. Maybe next time I'll add more coconut!

    Delicious and so easy! I followed the recipe exactly.

    These were a big hit at our family party. I made some plain and the rest with chocolate chips. We LOVE our chocolate. Thanks for always sharing your yummy recipes ?
