  1. Trim crusts from bread slices, and cut each slice into thirds. Lay out the slices on cookie sheets to dry out - a few hours or overnight. Turn over once for even drying. It is important that they dry out thoroughly like croutons.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat cookie sheets with cooking spray.
  3. Pour the sweetened condensed milk into a shallow dish, and put the coconut in a separate bowl. Dip bread pieces in the condensed milk, and then in the coconut. Lay on the greased baking sheets.
  4. Bake for 6 to10 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly toasted. Be careful, as the sweetened coconut flakes tend to burn easily. Remove from baking sheets and allow to cool.

I grew up with these as a child. My mother had this recipe in a depression-era cookbooks. It is quite messy to make; I guess that is why my sister and I loved to help out. We have even made thi...

These are easy and very good. When you use this recipe you probably should not expect something worthy of serving to guests, but if you just need a sweet coconut macaroon-y snack, these are the ...

I made these when I first started baking (I think it was 2nd or 3rd grade now I'm 26)and my mom called them Cinderellas. I still love these and just made another batch last night. I don't stale ...
