This is a very simple recipe, easy enough for children and nice for the Holidays!
2 bags sweetened coconut (14 oz. bags or 28 oz. total)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. almond extract
Preheat oven to 325 degrees fahrenheit. In a large bowl, mix the extracts into the condensed milk. With a spoon, throroughly stir in both bags of coconut. Drop spoonfuls of coconut onto a greased cookie sheet. The spoonfuls should be mounded but NOT tightly packed – more of a free form. Leave about 1 inch between cookies.
Bake at 325 degrees until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Remove from cookie sheet immediately onto a rack to cool. Yields about 60 cookies.
