3 cups sweetened flaked coconut (I like to buy my coconut at the Bulk Barn)
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 325 degrees
In large bowl, combine coconut, flour, and salt. Stir in milk and vanilla.
Drop by teaspoon onto a greased or parchment-lined cookie sheet.
Bake for 12 minutes or until edges are golden brown, better to slightly under bake.
Cool on cookie sheet for a few minutes, then transfer to wax paper or racks to cool completely.
Dip into melted milk chocolate wafers, let set.
Makes approximately 2 dozen cookies depending how big you make them.
Alternative: Instead of the chocolate, decorate with a piece of cherry before baking.
