Thomas Jefferson's Favorite Coconut Macaroon Cookies Recipe

Thomas Jefferson's Favorite Coconut Macaroons

  • 4 cups Sweetened Flake Coconut (14oz. package)
  • 1 cup Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 teaspoon Almond Extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Drop from a teaspoon onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Shape the cookies into rounds with your fingers.

Bake 9-12 minutes in a 350 degree oven until tops and bottoms are lightly browned. Cool on parchment paper. Makes 2-3 dozen macaroons depending on size.

This recipe is from one of my favorite cookbooks Presidential Cookies by Bev Young.
