Chewy Coconut Macaroons

I have a friend who is a big Ina fan. Ina Garten - the Barefoot Contessa. I'm rarely home to watch her show on the food network - but do love the recipes that I have made by her. This one is no different.
I wanted an easy no-fail macaroon cookie for a friend who asked me to make them for her. i had never made them before so didn't know what to expect. Behold, some good, chewy, full of flavor coconut macaroons. Way to go Ina!

1 14 oz bag sweetened flake coconut
1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 egg whites
1/4 tsp kosher salt

Mix first 3. Beat egg whites and salt to medium peak. Fold in. Bake at 325, on parchment paper for about 25 minutes, give or take depending how big you make them.
