4 cups flaked coconut
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 small box gelatin (strawberry, raspberry or desired flavor)
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Mix thoroughly, making sure gelatin is blended evenly. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours.
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease baking sheets well.
Shape coconut mixture into 1-inch balls and place on prepared baking sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned around edges. Remove from oven and let cookies cool on baking sheet 5 minutes before placing on wire racks to cool. Cookies will be soft.
Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
