Cocount Macaroons

This is a recipe is not a new one. I have tried several other coconut macaroon recipes and this one is by far the best.  I make them plain or with chocolate either drizzled on top or a layer of chocolate on the bottom.  Anyway you choose, they are great.  




14 oz Shredded Coconut

14 oz Can Sweetened Condensed Milk

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

2 Extra Large Egg Whites

1/4 tsp salt



Preheat oven to 325º

Mix the coconut, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla and salt.  In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites until medium-firm peaks form.  Fold the egg whites into the coconut mixture.

Drop using a 1 3/4 scoop or 2 teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet, or cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  

Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until they are golden brown.
