Becky's Greatest Hits: February 20th, 2008

If you are as wild for coconut as I am, then you've got to try this easy peasy macaroon recipe. Its one of my all time favorites from the (still fabulous twenty years later) Silver Palate cookbook my mom used when I was a kid (and still swears by)

2 1/2 c. shredded coconut
1/8 t. salt
2/3c. sweetened condensed milk
1 t. vanilla
1/3 c. flour

Mix it all up, drop onto a cookie sheet in little mounds and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. They should be golden brown, crispy on the outside but nice and moist inside. I used my fantastic new silpat cookie sheet for the last batch and didn't even need to use cooking spray. You may want to if using an ordinary metal cookie sheet. To dress them up a little you can also melt some chocolate chips and give them a little chocolate coat, but they really don't need any improving.
