Coconut Macaroon Cookies.

One of the better recipes I have found for them. :)

14 ounces sweetened shredded coconut
14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 extra-large egg whites, at room temperature
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
Combine the coconut, condensed milk, and vanilla in a large bowl. Whip the egg whites and salt on high speed in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment until they make medium-firm peaks. Carefully fold the egg whites into the coconut mixture.

Drop the batter onto sheet pans lined with parchment paper using either a 1 3/4-inch diameter ice cream scoop, or two teaspoons. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until golden brown. Cool and serve.

Build a man a fire and he will be warm for awhile.
Set a man on fire and he will be warm for the rest of his life...

These are delicious, I can highly recommend the recipe. I made assorted  to have with coffee after the church service today, these went like ... well... hot cakes and I had requests for a repeat showing of them in the future. :)
