Easy Holiday Dessert: Coconut Macaroons

As promised here's another easy holiday dessert!  I love coconut macaroons and I've been making during the holiday season for the past years. I made them this weekend for my husband's staff holiday party and they were all gone in minutes!   If you love coconut, then you will love this cookie!!!!

You'll need:
1/4 tsp of salt, 2 egg whites, bag of shredded coconut, 1 can of sweetened condensed milk, and  1tsp of  pure vanilla extract
Mix the condensed milk, coconut and vanilla

it should look like this......
In the bowl of your mixer add the two egg whites and salt....use your whisk attachment and whisk on high until medium peeks form.......
the egg whites should be firm enough to stick to the whisk

Fold into coconut mixture

use a small ice cream scoop to shape the cookies and......

drop unto the baking sheet...bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes , depending on your oven...

Let cool and enjoy!
