Easiest Cookie Ever

Coconut macaroons. Truly, the easiest cookie ever to make. Total of 5 ingredients. That's it. And they're very satisfying. Though not calorie free, they are nearly fat free and did I mention they are the easiest cookie ever to make. Of course, you must like coconut. Here is the recipe I've used forever (good for Passover too.)
Coconut Macaroons
1 14 oz. can condensed milk
14 oz. shredded sweetened coconut
2 room temperature egg whites
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. salt
That's it for the ingredients.
Preheat oven to 325 deg. Combine milk, coconut and vanilla in a large bowl. In your mixer bowl beat the egg whites and salt until they form medium soft peaks. Gently combine the egg whites into the coconut mixture. Put a large teaspoon of mixture per cookie onto a parchment or silpat lined cookie sheet. Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown. There you have it. Makes approximately 24 cookies.

Macaroon-O-My! They are one of my favorites! They look delightful! Are they Passover-friendly due to their Kosher-ness? Not! Not at your house anyway which is chock full of cloven-hoof carnage! Have they been blessed by Rabbi Kutcherpeckerov?
