Grandma Adams' Coconut Macaroons

( This is Grandma Adams with her children and their families.  There was no writing on the back, but we think that Grandpa Tony is the young man standing off to the side on the left)

For those youngsters in the family that may not know Grandma Adams was the mother of Grandpa Tony.  Steve and I are the proud owners of one of her old cook books.  They did not have the conveniences of large super markets in her day especially in the Oklahoma prairie.  All the recipes are very basic and simple, but what would a family tree recipe book be without some history.  I hope you try and enjoy grandma's macaroons.

1 egg-white
1  1/4 cups sweet coconut
1/3  cup thick condensed milk
1/2  teaspoon vanilla

Beat the egg-white until stiff, then fold it into the mixture of coconut and condensed milk.  Add flavoring.  Drop by spoonfuls on a greased baking sheet and shape into cakes.  Bake in a moderate oven 350  until lightly browned.
