Notes

In searching for the "perfect" coconut macaroon recipe, I found this in one of my antique cookbooks, circa 1840

Regular granulated sugar works fine for this. However, freshly grated coconut works entirely differently than the dried sweetened stuff. If you're going to make this, do your own grating or try unsweetened coconut.
