Patty's Low Fat Coconut Macaroons

My sister, Patty, made these cookies for Tori's party a few weeks ago. I LOVE them! They're as simple to make as they are sweet and chewy. As Patty says, "The low fat part is great, but I like them because they are fast and easy and only use a few ingredients (which I usually have in the pantry)." Works for me! Thanx Pat!

2/3 cup low fat sweetened condensed milk
1 cup corn flakes
1 cup rice krispies
3/4 cup shredded sweetened coconut

Thoroughly combine all ingredients. Drop mixture in walnut-sized mounds 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes at 375F or until cookies start to turn golden brown. Remove cookies from sheet after one minute of cooling and cool completely on wire rack.

To make sure your macaroons don't stick, use parchment paper or a silpat liner instead of greasing your baking sheet.
