Christmas Baking 2016 – COCONUT MACAROONS (Gluten Free)
Hi! I’m Melina, homeschooling mother of 11, and Grandmelina to 2!
We LOVE coconut. Some of us are also grain free. And I love easy and delicious. So I made some coconut macaroons for my DH and kids today – half to eat now, and half to freeze for Christmas (only 10 days to go!). The first of my Christmas baking this year. Well, second if you count the fudge stored away in the freezer.
- 6 cups (200 g x 3) sweetened coconut
- 1 can (300 ml) sweetened condensed milk
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
Combine all of the ingredients and mix well. I made balls of the coconut mixture and placed them on a parchment lined baking sheet. If you’d rather not get your hands so messy, you can place rounded spoonfuls of the coconut mixture on the parchment lined baking sheets instead. Bake each batch at 350°F for 10-12 minutes. Cool completely and remove (I used a metal flipper to facilitate removal).
Want to dress up your macaroons? Dip the bottoms in melted chocolate.
