Author: Mama Bear Email  | Filed under: cookies with 92 words and 2360 views

These are good macaroons...

2/3 cup all-purpose flour
5 1/2 cups flaked coconut
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or aluminum foil.

In a large bowl, stir together the flour, coconut and salt. Stir in the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla using your hands until well blended. Use a cookie scoop to drop dough onto the prepared cookie sheets. Cookies should be about golf ball size.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until coconut is toasted.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream together:
1/2 c sugar
1 c butter
Mix in:
2-1/4 c AP flour
dash of salt

Press 3/4 of the mixture into ungreased 9x13 pan (I like to line it with parchment paper so the jam doesn't stick to the sides).
Warm 1-1/2 c jam

Spread it over the mixture in the pan. Sprinkle remaining crumb mixture on top.

Bake 40 minutes, cool slightly then cut into squares.

This are really good cookies with recipes from here. They reminded me of Mexican wedding cookies.

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup powdered sugar, plus more for dusting
2 teaspoons lemon juice
Grated peel of 1 lemon (about 1 1/2 teaspoons)

Stir together flour and salt in a medium bowl. Beat butter and 3/4 cup powdered sugar with mixer at medium speed until flufy. Beat in lemon juice and lemon peel until blended.

Add the flour and salt mixture in 1/2 cup intervals but beating just until blended.

Bake for 20-25 minutes in a 300 degree oven or until cookies are lightly browned on the bottom. Cool on cookie sheets for 5 minutes before moving to a wire rack to cool completely.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar to get a beautifully elegant look!
