1 (16 oz.) bag coconut flakes 1 (14 oz.) can condensed milk 1 tsp. almond extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix coconut flakes, condensed milk and almond extract together in a large bowl. Mix until well blended and all the milk is absorbed. Drop mixture from spoon on ungreased cookie pan. Bake 10 to 12 minutes until bottom of cookie turns light brown. Cool on rack. These cookies stay soft and chewy.
Put on 1/2 slice cherry if desired (will add more calories).
I make 24 small ones of these. You can make them as small as you would like or as big as you like. Depends on what you would like for calorie counts.
I made these yesterday for a children's church recital. I love the fact that there are just 3 ingredients. I did not love the fact that they are too sticky and hard to handle. Maybe it's me!
