Coconut Macaroons

I've been looking for a recipe that is 'cakey', you know, like the store bought type. All the recipes I've found are made with egg whites and/or condensed milk; neither of which make for a 'cakey' cookie. Can anyone help?

      I don't like them much either but a close friend things they are great and that my egg white/condensed milk version was just 'ok'. So if I can find a recipe like that it would be great.

        2 eggs
        1c. sugar
        1/2 t. salt
        1/3 c. flour
        1 t. vanilla or almond extract.
        3 c. sweetened coconut

        whisk together eggs, sugar, salt & vanilla until combined. Stir in flour. Stir in coconut. Bake at 325 for 10-12 minutes or until light golden brown.
