Life's Busy Times….

I hope your summer is going well. Mine has been amazing but going by way too quickly. There have been weekend trips, day trips, dinner with friends, and even some quiet moments. Because of this, there has been so many things I have wanted to post on here but haven't had the chance. 

These cookies I made for a friend's birthday a few months back. Totally forgot to post about them but ended up making them again for a 4th of July party a few weeks ago. 

Here is a recipe for when life has those busy times. The moment when one realizes they need a dessert  but have NO time to make something. I had one of these moments! I realized I needed a dessert one evening and had to fit them in between work and running. So this recipe was born out of desperation….one bowl, one baking sheet, and less than one hour…..

Coconut Macaroons

2/3 C Unbleached Flour
5 C Flaked Coconut
1/4 Tsp Salt
1 (14 ounce) can Sweetened Condensed Milk
2 Tsp Vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 Degrees F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine flour, coconut and salt. Add sweetened condensed milk and vanilla until well mixed. Using an small scoop, drop dough onto the prepared baking sheets.

Bake for about 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until coconut is toasted
