These treats are more commonly known as coconut macaroons, but as a kid, I always called them coconut puffs. Whatever you call them, they're slightly sweet, crunchy on the outside, and chewy on the inside.
Servings: 24 macaroons
Ingredients
  • 1 (14-oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 (14-oz.) bag sweetened coconut flakes
  • 3 TB. all-purpose flour
  • 1 TB. vanilla extract
  • 3 large egg whites
  • [1/4] tsp. salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk, sweetened coconut flakes, all-purpose flour, and vanilla extract.
  3. In another large bowl, and using an electric mixer on high speed, blend egg whites and salt for about 4 minutes or until white peaks form.
  4. In three batches, gently fold coconut mixture into beaten egg whites.
  5. Spoon coconut mixture about 3 tablespoons at a time in mounds on the baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 25 minutes or until macaroons are golden brown.
  6. Using a spatula, transfer macaroons to a flat surface to cool.
  7. Serve at room temperature.

Tasty Tip
