Preheat your oven to 325° 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.
Gather your parchment-lined baking sheets and scoop a tablespoon of the cookie mixture onto the parchment, forming a mound with each.
