Easy Coconut Macaroons & A Great Spring Baking Giveaway From McCormick

Let’s talk coconut.  I find it’s one of those things that people either like or don’t like and there isn’t much middle ground.  I fall into the like category.  No, wait, I fall into the LOVE category.  Lately I’ve been kind of coconut obsessed, so when McCormick asked if I would like to try making their Easy Coconut Macaroon recipe and share it with my readers and Pinterest followers (as well as a giveaway – keep reading!), obviously I was on board.

These are beyond easy and unbelievably delicious.  It’s safe to say that between my husband, and myself these did not last long (I’m talking less than 24 hours…).

Would you like to whip up some of your own?  Let me walk you through the recipe and then share the great Spring Baking Kit McCormick is giving away…

Easy Coconut Macaroons From McCormick


2 packages (7 ounces each) flaked coconut (about 4 cups)
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 teaspoons McCormick® Imitation Almond Extract


1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix coconut, sweetened condensed milk and almond extract in large bowl. Drop teaspoonfuls of mixture onto greased baking sheets.

2. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Immediately remove from baking sheets to wire racks; cool completely.

Three ingredients.  Quick and easy.  Incredibly delicious.

If you are a coconut lover, this is a must make recipe!

    my favorite thing to bake in the spring are lemon squares! i used to work with a woman who made the best ones, and every time i make them i always think of her! (we worked in a preschool and we called her Grandma Sue- she def was a mother figure to all of us, and always surprised us with baked goodies!)

  47. Erin says

    Hmm.. poundcake sounds pretty good about now, but I have a ton of cake/cookie recipes piled up that I need to try! Spring is as good a time as any. :)

  48. says

    OMgoodness. I am currently baking off my second sheet of these macaroons and they are so simple! my mother is a die hard macaroon fan but she’s also a picky one so I only buy them when I know they’ll be lightly toasted and sticky. These are perfect!
    As far as my favorite thing to bake in the spring? I love baking anything at all times but spring is actually when I tend to break out the Ice Box Cake (graham crackers layered with pudding and cool whip) or simple cookie reciepes. Ice Box Cake is a classic no bake thats perfect on a spring day and I love baking off cookies because you dont have to sit in a hot oven too long before you have lovely little treats. Some of my favorite cookies are lemon pudding cookies, chocolate chip, or white chocolate macadamia.

  49. Brittney S says
