My children love these chewy coconut macaroon cookies! They are easy to make and since they only have 4 ingredients they come together quickly, but they need to bake for about 25 minutes. Pretty soon it will be too warm to make these cookies, so I made several batches while we are still experiencing cool weather and placed them in the freezer.
I rarely use parchment paper, but I strongly advice using either parchment paper or a Silpat Mat when making this recipe. These cookies are quite sticky and are very difficult to remove from a baking sheet, even if the baking sheet has been greased and floured.
14 oz. bag of sweetened coconut
14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 egg whites
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, combine coconut, condensed milk and vanilla.
In a small bowl, beat egg whites until peaks form. (I use my emersion blender with the beater attachment).
Gently fold egg whites into coconut mixture.
Drop by heaping tablespoons (I use my cookie dough scoop) onto the parchment lined baking sheet. Press into a mound shape if necessary. Repeat.
Bake at 325o for 23 – 28 minutes or until golden brown. I allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet.
Makes 2 dozen large cookies.
Are you indulging in a baking frenzy before it gets hot?

Yumm…Coconut macaroons are my fav- actually these days anything coconut is my favorite!
These look delicious and easy to make, and I think my DH would appreciate them. Thanks for the recipe!

Thank you for another great recipe, Alea. We love macaroons and these look really delicious. I especially like that they only have four ingredients and come together so quickly. It's not warm enough here yet for me to have to worry about having the oven on 🙂
I LOVE these and so does my husband. Definitely one of my fav. desserts.

I'd like to invite you to share your recipe on Sweet Tooth Friday, my weekly recipe link-up. I hope to see you there. http://alli-n-son.com/2011/05/19/chocolate-chip-muffins/
Our temps have been in the 40's, and I am loving warming up the house with my oven! Doesn't feel like May, but we enjoyed soup, homemade bread, and runzas (meat-filled bread pockets) this week.
I am ready for some 80's and lots of salads!
coconut macron is my favorite, I am now cutting on my sugar. I need to make this when i feel okay.
What an easy macaroon recipe! I love macaroons and look forward to trying these ones. Thanks for posting.
This is a great recipe because it uses the whole can of milk. I hate the recipes that use only part, then there is waste. Thanks, I love macaroons.

I have this same recipe! Sometimes I use 1 teaspoon almond extract and 1 teaspoon vanilla instead of all vanilla. It's a nice change.
I haven't been baking much. The last sweets I baked were for Easter.
