Macaroons are a great dessert for when you have guests over. They're easy to make, and they're cookies that look more complicated than they actually are.

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 cups of granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk

Put butter, sugar and milk into the saucepan. Heat on medium stirring often, until it comes to a boil. Remove pan from burner. Add to the saucepan:

  • 6 tablespoons cocoa
  • 3 cups rolled oats (quick but instant)
  • 1/2 cup coconut
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Stir well together. Drop by rounded spoon onto waxed paper. Cool completely. Store in container with lid and waxed paper between layers. Makes about 40 cookies.
