A Quick and Easy Coconut Macaroons Recipe

Updated on September 27, 2016

Enjoy Coconut Macaroons Anytime

Baking Coconut Macaroons

This is the quickest and easiest recipe for delicious coconut macaroons imaginable.

Instead of dipping the coconut macaroon in chocolate, it is combined in one cookie.

I have assumed that most people love coconut and chocolate together - so yummy.

A real crowd pleaser for parties, tea time, holidays, or anytime you want a dessert that looks and tastes delicious.

Why not serve your favorite cookies on your special bone China?

Coconut Macaroons For Tea Time

Honestly, coconut macaroons are cookies that make a nice dessert for a luncheon with the girls, a dinner party with family or business associates.

You'll make a hit with these delectable, anytime cookies. They'll even travel well for picnics.

No one will ever know you didn't slave over the oven for hours.

Decorate with fruit (raspberries are a favorite of mine).

Recipe From Days Past

I had always eaten store bought coconut macaroons and had attempted (to no avail) to achieve the moistness and taste that I had always expected from this cookie.

I think you will be pleasantly surprised to find that these coconut macaroon cookies are moist and chewy. They taste like toasted coconut because of the effects of baking.

Note: the recipe described in the next capsule isn't for "Quick and Easy Recipe for Coconut Macaroons."

How Not to Make Coconut Macaroons

Recipes from the past will list the mixing and baking instructions for holiday macaroons as:

Beat eggs until foamy, then add sugar and beat until thickened. Fold in flour, baking powder and salt, and then fold in butter, vanilla and coconut.

Divide batter in half and blend chocolate and cinnamon into half, lemon rind in remainder.

Drop by teaspoon onto greased and floured baking sheets. Decorate with chocolate chips if desired. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes.

Four Ingredients

  • 14 oz bag Flaked Coconut
  • 1 bag Chocolate Morsels
  • 1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Bake Some Tonight

What could be better than a medley of chocolate and coconut?
