A Simple Macaroon

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by TooAllergic

This cookie is made without flour and without sweetened condensed milk. Light and chewy. I prefer using unsweetened coconut, but sweetened is fine. This was my Grandmother's recipe... probably from Better Homes and Gardens. They are flat, not the traditional mounded cookie. Perfect for dipping!

A nice, easy sweet for coconut lovers. I may try drizzling some chocolate on them next time. Thanks for posting.
