Coconut Macaroons

Coconut seems to be a very derisive ingredient. People either love it or hate it with a fiery passion. I absolutely adore coconut. My birthday cake every year is coconut, I love coconut mixed into fruit, and I will eat shredded coconut by the spoon full just by itself. These macaroons are just another way to fill my craving for coconut.
