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.
