Coconut Macaroons :: Coquitos

Today my sweet tooth impulse me to bake this extremely sweet treat: Coconut Macaroons. This recipe in my adaptation from Allrecipes.com too my liking, the lesser ingredients a recipe has the better and easier to make it.They are a very sweet, ideal to accompany with black coffee, sugarless green tea and of course Maté Tea. My recipe tester, of course my hubby, said: Oh,They are amazing!



Ingredients
1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 (14 ounce) package flaked coconut
Oven 350f ~Yield 60 mini macaroons
Line baking sheets with parchment paper and grease it, or grease a pan with oil and add flour it.
In a big bowl mix  well the coconut with condensed milk and vanilla extract.
with your hands shape the coconut into little balls and place them in the pan

Bake them for 15 to 20 min or until the tops and borders are brown, the bigger the macaroon the longer it will take to bake. After baking remove them immediately from the pan and place them in a wire rack or in cleaned parchment paper to cool down. ( if you allow them to cool in the pan them on the pan they will stick rapidly).
My husband melted chocolate chips and dipped the macaroons bottoms in it. :)
