Oatmeal Macaroons

Servings: 75 - 80 macaroons
You'd be surprised at the versatility of oatmeal. I've been looking for the best recipe for macaroons, but after testing the ones found in recipe books, I'm still not satisfied with the results, so I've decided to create my own recipe. After testing my recipe, I can say I've found the one that will satisfy me. I hope you'll enjoy it too.

4 large eggs
1 cup sugar
1 can (14 oz./300 ml) sweetened condensed milk
200 grams (3/4 cup) dessicated coconut
1 cup quick cooking oats
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup butter, slightly melted (creamy)
Small paper baking cups

Beat the eggs well and add the sugar, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla, dessicated coconut, oats and butter. Mix well. Drop a spoonful (a teaspoonful or so is good) of the mixture into the small paper cups, filling baking cups about 2/3 full, and bake for 20 minutes at 180 degrees C (375 degrees F), or until light brown.

Makes: 75-80 macaroons.
