So I am here to say, I enjoy to cook and bake. Yep, that's me. I spend countless hours reading through cooking blogs. Pretty interesting, eh? Now don't be confused. Just because I enjoy it, doesn't mean I'm the best at it. I like simple recipes. Minimal, on hand ingredients. And when I say bake, I mean things of the cookies and cakes variety. I have never tried my hand with anything requiring yeast. For some reason it scares the bejeezes out of me. But it is on my list of things to help me out of my comfort zone and to master. But that's another post.
Now to the good stuff right? Here is one of my very favorite recipes. I've been told these cookies are better than ones purchased in fancy bakeries. You'll find that hilarious when you see how easy they are. Also, I found this recipe in blogland. I have no idea where. I'll try to find it, so credit may be given where due.
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1 bag (14-16oz) flaked coconut
2 tsp vanilla
Chocolate chips, optional
Preheat oven to 350. Grease baking sheets. (And I mean GREASE!) Mix first three ingredients and drops onto cookie sheets. (I suggest greasing up your digits, too before dropping.) Bake 10-15 minutes until edges of coconut are lightly brown. (I like them closer to 15.) Sprinkle with chocolate chips if desired. Or let cool and dip in melted chocolate chips.
Easy right? I'm kind of embarrassed to admit it...but only kind of. :)
*I found it! I can't believe I found the original recipe. So the credit goes to Madigan Made here.
