Holiday Cookie Recipes :: Coconut Macaroon Wreaths

Here is a recipe that is near and dear to my heart. Mom and I would make these every year and although I wasn’t a fan of eating them as a kid, I LOVED making them. And being in the kitchen with my mom working on holiday cookies was pretty sweet. On many levels.

So, here it is for you! Enjoy!

Coconut Macaroon Wreaths

2  8oz pkg. shredded coconut
1  15oz. can sweetened condensed milk
2  tsp. vanilla
Green food color
Red cinnamon candy

Stir together coconut, milk, vanilla & food color.  Drop by teaspoons, 2″ apart, onto well greased cookie sheet.  With tip of spoon and your fingers, shape into wreath.  Trim with candy (3 placed around the wreath or 3 in a clump).  Bake at 350 for 8 min.  Immediately remove to cooling rack.
