Easy Chewy Coconut Macaroons

My family loves these sticky chewy coconut macaroons! They are easy to make, but be careful, they disappear fast!Coconut Cookies

3 cups of dry sweetened coconut flakes

1 cup of all-purpose flour

1/8 teaspoon of salt

1 1/2 teaspoons of almond extract

1 (14 ounce) can of sweetened condensed milk

In a medium size bowl, combine the coconut flakes, salt and flour.

Next, add the condensed milk and almond extract and stir until combined.

Adding the condensed milk

The mixture will be sticky but it should hold its shape. If it seems too wet or gooey, you can add a little bit more flour until you reach the desired consistency.

Macaroon mixture

Spoon small rounded mounds onto a greased baking sheet about 2 inches apart. If they seem to “puddle” and are not holding their shape, you may need to add more flour.
