    Coconut Macaroon Blossom Cookies Recipe

    Coconut Macaroon Blossom Cookies Recipe

    I absolutely love baking cookies for the holidays! Some of my favorite recipes are blossom cookies including my peanut butter Kiss cookies and butter pecan blossom cookies. I am also a huge fan of coconut macaroons. During my holiday baking this year, I made some delicious coconut macaroon blossoms with the help of my daughter. Everyone in my family loved the recipe so much that I ended up making a second batch before Christmas!

    Ingredients

    • 2/3 cup of all-purpose flour
    • 14 ounces of shredded coconut
    • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
    • 14 ounces of sweetened condensed milk
    • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
    • 1 teaspoon of almond extract
    • 60 chocolate Kisses

    Directions

    1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
    2. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
    3. Combine the flour, coconut, and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Stir thoroughly.
    4. Add the sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, and almond extract to the coconut mixture. Stir thoroughly.
    5. Drop tablespoon balls onto the parchment-lined baking sheet. The cookies do not spread so place the balls fairly close together. Pat down any stray coconut shreds to prevent burning.
    6. Bake for 8 minutes or until the bottoms turn slightly golden.
    7. Immediately press a chocolate Kiss into the center of each macaroon.
    8. Allow the cookies to cool thoroughly.
    9. Store the cooled coconut macaroon blossom cookies in an airtight container.
