Coconut Macaroons for the Christmas cookie exchange

This recipe is from The Silver Palate Cookbook by Julee Rosso and Sheila Lukins. Took us a long time to find this macaroon recipe and it has become our family favorite. Ida made these today (thanks Id!) and added some Christmas flair.


Coconut Macaroons

  • 1/3 c unbleached flour
  • 2 1/2 c shredded coconut
  • 1/8 ts salt
  • 2/3 c sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 ts vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix flour, coconut and salt. Add sweetened condensed milk and vanilla. Stir well to make a thick batter.

Drop by tablespoonfuls onto well-greased cookie sheets, allowing an inch between cookies. Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan at once; and cool on racks. Makes about 2 dozen depending on the size of your cookie.

Have a Merry Christmas!
