There’s something about coconut that reminds me of spring. I know a lot of people that aren’t coconut fans but I love it – the sweet, tropical flavors just make me happy. The more coconut, the better! 

Today’s #SpringSweetWeek recipe – the final recipe of the week – is a family recipe, a cookie that my mom has been making for as long as I remember. These Coconut Macaroons take just a few minutes to mix together and make only 12 cookies. It is the perfect amount for satisfying my sweet tooth, but not so many that I’m eating cookies for days.

Recipe Notes for Small Batch Coconut Macaroons:

  • This recipe is for a small batch – a dozen cookies – but it can be easily doubled or tripled. For reference, you’ll need about half a bag of coconut flakes, and almost all of a can of sweetened condensed milk. Be sure to measure because you definitely won’t use the entire can.
  • Cooking Time: Mine cooked for exactly 12 minutes.
