OMG, these cookies are soooo good and sooo easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly, except I added about 1/2 tsp. of almond extract in addition to the vanilla. I mixed the extracts with the condensed milk before adding to the coconut mixture. Wetting your hands with cold water before shaping the cookies helps keep the sticky batter from sticking to your hands. (a 14oz pkg coconut = 51/2 cups) After the cookies cooled, I drizzled them with semi-sweet chocolate. (put about 1 cup of chips in a qt. freezer bag and microwave for about 90 sec.- "squishing" chips after every 30 sec.- until melted- then snip a very small corner out of bag and drizzle over cookies.) The whole house smelled like toasted coconut. Oh, I also sprayed the foil with Pam with flour before placing my cookies on it- they came off very easy. I will never make another coconut macaroon recipe.
