Almond Coconut Drops
2 2/3 cup shredded coconut
2 Tablespoons corn starch
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
2 teaspoons almond extract (Amaretto will also work)
1/2 cup slivered almonds
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
In a medium bowl, combine the coconut and the corn starch. Stir in the condensed milk and the almond extract and mix well. Lastly, mix in the slivered almonds.
Drop the coconut dough, one teaspoon at a time, onto a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet, spreading the drops at least one inch apart from one another.
Place the cookie sheet into the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Remove and allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet.
