Kokosmakronen: The BEST German Recipe Coconut Macaroons

Kokosmakronen are some of my favorite German Christmas cookies that I ate all the time growing up in Germany! These are the best Coconut Macaroons (I learned after 4 trials)! They're soft on the inside and have a little crunch on the outside AND they're easy to make!
