Coconut macaroons with sweetened condensed milk instead of egg whites are my version of a recipe my mom loved. All you do is mix, drop and bake. —Veronica Miller, Aliquippa, PA

"I was really disappointed in these because the recipe looked so good. I mixed and measured everything exactly..... when I took the cookie tray out of the oven after 10 minutes, they were golden brown, but each cookie was sitting in a little puddle of milk. After 5 minutes of cooling, I could not scoop them off the tray with a spatula without making a gooey mess, they would not hold together. So I let them sit longer and still did not have any more success. I did use parchment paper on the trays. Maybe if I try them again I will use 3/4 of the milk called for."
