Ingredients

  • 3¼ - 4 cups shredded coconut
  • ¾ cup sweetened condensed milk about ½ can
  • pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F) and line two cookie sheets with baking paper. Set aside.
  2. Place the condensed milk and salt in a medium sized bowl. Add the coconut in 1 cup increments and mix with a spoon. Make sure the coconut and the condensed milk are completely mixed through, with the resulting mixture being sticky but not too wet. In case the mixture is too wet, add more coconut, as needed.
  3. Use a tablespoon to place the coconut mixture on the prepared cookie sheet, keeping about an inch apart from the cookies. A spatula or spoon can be used to smooth the tops if needed.

  4. Place the cookies in the oven and bake for about 15 – 20 minutes till golden brown on top. Remove from the oven, and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.

  5. The coconut macaroons can be stored in an air-tight container for 4 days.
