Coconut Macaroons

These macaroons are so simple but taste complex. They have evolved from being a staple at our annual Christmas party to the "go-to" treat for whenever we have company, are watching football games, or just want to indulge. If I didn't make macaroons, everyone would be disappointed. When friends can't make our parties or get-togethers, they write they will miss the macaroons, not us!
Enjoy!

Simple? Yes. Delicious? Definitely! These moist, flaky cookies have the wonderful addition of sweetened condensed milk. Each time I taste that unique flavor I'm transported to days of old and can practically taste my mother's many wonderful recipes. This one ranks right up there with them.
