Haystacks

Super simple, super sticky, super good.   You’ll be rinsing your hands with every batch – it’s not like it’s a really messy recipe but it does get your hands pretty sticky when you’re putting the cookies onto the cookie sheet.     It’s tough, but these cookies aren’t going to make themselves….

Ingredients

·        16 oz shredded coconut, sweetened

·        ¾ cup flour

·        1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk

·        1 t almond extract

·        1 ½ t vanilla

·        1 cup chocolate chips (maybe a little more – put the cup in first and see how you feel)

Directions

Mix the coconut and flour.

Add the condensed milk, almond extract and vanilla extract and stir until completely blended.

Stir in the chocolate chips.

Put about a tablespoon size onto a baking sheet (this is a great place to use parchment paper because these are sticky – it really helps with cleaning up).

You’ll still get it all over your hands in just putting them on the baking sheet because they’re really sticky but I’m sure you’ll be able to cope.

Cool on the baking sheet for a couple minutes to let them set, then put them onto a wire rack to cool completely.
