Eggless tutti-frutti coconut macaroons

Coconut macaroons, were in my to-do list for a long time. Being a food blogger, my favorites and bookmark folders are always overflowing, whenever i see a good recipe, i bookmark it immediately. That too if it is bake recipe, i bookmark with egg, without egg, vegan every good bake. 
For the second week of BM, i chose Kids delight - mini bakes as my theme. Before deciding on the recipes, i checked my Bookmark folder and picked 3 recipes. First one, is this simple and easy coconut macaroons.
The recipe is so simple, even a kid can bake it. It is just mixing of ingredients and shaping it. The original recipe used just coconut and condensed milk. I have added tutti-frutti to the dough and garnished it pistachios. The cookies have a crusty bottom and a soft chewy texture. This recipe gives a dozen cookies. You can double or halve the recipe according to the number of cookies needed. 
Now coming to the photos, all are taken with iphone, since we had a family get-together at my BIL's house and had to leave very early. So, i hurriedly clicked using my iphone and left.  Will try to take them again with my camera and update as soon as possible. 

Ingredients
1 heaped cup of dessicated coconut
5 tbsp condensed milk
2generdous pinched of vanilla powder or 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
