Super Easy and oh-so-cute, Spring Basket Cookies!  (Coconut Macaroons)


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/4 cup of flour
  • 2 cups of Shredded coconut
  • 2/3 cup of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • pastel candies  (I used M & M’s but you could use just about anything.)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 F.  Grease a cookie sheet.
  2. Stir the flour and coconut together in a large mixing bowl until the coconut is thoroughly coated with flour.  The instructions say to use a wooden spoon, but I don’t know why nor do I even own a wooden spoon, I just used my silicone spoonula.  (This is one of my favorite kitchen gadgets.  If you ever buy one, make sure it is rated for high-heat.)
  3. Add the sweetened condensed milk and Vanilla and mix well.
  4. Drop coconut mixture by the spoonful on to the cookie sheet, 2 inches apart.  If you want to make the “basket”, dampen your fingers with water and gently tap the middle to make a depression to hold your candies.
  5. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the cookies are golden brown.
  6. Place cookies on a cooling rack to cool and once they have cooled, add your candies.
