coconut and a move

over the weekend, i moved to a new apartment. the most exciting part? finally having a real kitchen. i inaugurated it with lasagna, quickly followed by coconut macaroons. my great grandmother would make these when i was little, and i had a serious craving for coconut

one of my roommates is allergic to eggs, however, so i had to make them with condensed milk. it actually worked out great.

coconut macaroons

[ingredients]
1/3 cup flour
2 3/4 cups shredded coconut
1/8 teaspoon salt
7 oz (3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons) condensed milk (sweetened)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

[directions]
mix flour, shredded coconut, and salt. add condensed milk and vanilla. mix well. if it’s not holding well, add a bit more condensed milk until it’s possible to form half-domes of the mixture that hold relatively well together. place 1.5-2 inch diameter half-domes on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. bake at 350F for 12-15 minutes or until coconut is lightly toasted

*sorry about the blurriness of the pictures, i had to take them quickly before we ate them all. they did not last*
