“Chewy coconut macaroons using three ingredients BELIEVE me you have to try them! I could never believe my elderly neighbor made these from bread until I tried them myself and I hate condensed milk but not in this recipe!”

Original recipe yields 4 dozen

Directions

  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 came across this recipe using the recipe roulette on this site and what a great find! I love macaroons and this is such an easy twist. Instead of letting the bread dry overnight, I first cut up the bread (into 6 instead of 3 to make them more cookie size), then toasted them in the toaster oven. Worked like a charm. Great EASY recipe... can't wait to use for Christmas!

Drizzle some melted chocolate over the tops. These are okay, more of a novelty because they are made with bread. Worth trying at least once. Maybe you can jazz them up a little with your own twist.

I did not like this recipe at all. Very messy to make and the end result tasted like coconut flavored day old bread. No one in my family cared for them either.
