Chewy coconut macaroons using three ingredients BELIEVE me you have to try them! I could never believe my elderly neighbor made these from bread until I tried them myself and I hate condensed milk but not in this recipe!
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 16 slices white bread
- 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 (7 ounce) package sweetened flaked coconut
Trim crusts from bread slices, and cut each slice into thirds. Lay out the slices on cookie sheets to dry out - a few hours or overnight. Turn over once for even drying. It is important that they dry out thoroughly like croutons.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat cookie sheets with cooking spray.
Pour the sweetened condensed milk into a shallow dish, and put the coconut in a separate bowl. Dip bread pieces in the condensed milk, and then in the coconut. Lay on the greased baking sheets.
Bake for 6 to10 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly toasted. Be careful, as the sweetened coconut flakes tend to burn easily. Remove from baking sheets and allow to cool.
