Oh, coconut: How do we love thee? Let us count the ways. These macaroons are chewy on the outside with a soft, melt-in-your-mouth inside. For a crunchier, chewier shell, toast the coconut before adding it to the cookie batter. For a softer snowy-white exterior, use fresh coconut and skip the toasting step before you bake the cookies.
