i love these cookies. they aren't like normal coconut macaroons. they were more of a doughy cookie than an egg white cookie. if anyone has a recipe for something similar i would really appreciate it! from what i understand archway as gone out of business so i can no longer get my christmas time fix of these icon_sad.gif

I just found this recipe today, and also made it today. OMG i have a son that hates coconut, but could not put these down. I made 3 batches, and will probably have to make more because these will be gone.

2-2/3 cups BAKER'S ANGEL FLAKE Coconut
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. vanilla

HEAT oven to 350°F.

MIX coconut, milk and vanilla in large bowl. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls about 1-inch apart onto well-greased baking sheets. Press down ends of coconut with back of spoon.

BAKE 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from baking sheets. Cool completely on wire racks.
