I figured it was about time I posted this one.  I actually haven't made this recipe in awhile, but I have used it several times in the past and let me tell you...if you want a crowd-pleasing cookie, this is definitely it!  I took a recipe I found on allrecipes.com and simplified it a little bit.  Even people who hate coconut seem to love these!  The best part is, it only takes a few ingredients and one batch makes a pretty decent number of cookies.  Happy baking!

Coconut Chocolate Chip Macaroons
(makes about 2 to 3 dozen)

5 cups flaked coconut
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, stir together the coconut, flour and salt. Stir in the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla until everything is well blended. Mix in chocolate chips.  Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto the prepared pan.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until coconut is sufficiently toasted. Immediately remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.
