Hi everyone! For my first cookie challenge, I have chosen to make these Polka-Dot Macaroons. Why? Well, we were having friends over for a gathering with lots of little kids, and the fun colored M&M's just made it so cute for them! Or so I thought... it seemed to be a big hit with the "big kids" too :)
These are very simple cookies to make, just takes some muscles to mix the ingredients since the condensed milk and the coconut flakes just want to stick together rather than blend well. So roll up your sleeves and "get 'er done!" so to speak. Enjoy the cookies!
Makes ~3-4 dozen cookies
-5 cups coconut flakes
-1 can (14oz) sweetened condensed milk
-1/2 cup AP flour
-1.5 cups M&M's miniature baking bits
1. Preheat oven at 350F.
2. In a large bowl, combine the coconut flakes, condensed milk, and flour. Stir in the baking bits.
3. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 1 in. apart (cookies don't grow during baking process) onto baking sheets coated with cooking spray or lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350F for 7-10 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are lightly browned. Remove from baking sheets and let cool completely on wire racks.
