How to Make:

To make these cookies, you only need these 5 ingredients:

  • Sweetened Flake Coconut
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Egg Whites
  • Salt

Preheat your oven to 325º F and line your baking sheets with parchment paper and set them aside.

In a large mixing bowl, add your coconut, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla extract and combine. Then in another mixing bowl, beat the egg whites and salt with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form.

Next, you will use a rubber scraper to fold the beaten egg whites into the bowl with the coconut mixture. Fold until well combined, but please be careful to not over mix.

Gather your parchment-lined baking sheets and scoop a tablespoon of the cookie mixture onto the parchment, forming a mound with each. Repeat this process with the remaining cookie mixture, making sure to leave 1 inch between each coconut macaroon.

Then bake the macaroons in the preheated oven until the tops are golden and the cookies are set, which will be around 20 minutes.  Remove them from the oven and allow to cool completely. Store in an airtight container for 5 to 7 days.

Freezer Instructions:

These macaroons are great to freeze for later!

After they have completely cooled, store them in an airtight, freezer safe container, using parchment paper between the layers of cookies. Freeze for up to 3 months. Allow to thaw before serving.

  1. They are called Cocadas in Mexico and the most traditional don’t have condensed milk. But I shall try this recipe 🙂

    • Thank you for sharing, Luz. I love how different countries, and even different regions within a country, prepare foods differently! I hope you love this version. For the Cocadas version, is it basically the same just without the sweetened condensed milk?

  2. Thank you for this Passover friendly recipe! I plan to make a batch to share with gal pals the next time we get together for Mah Jongg.
