I love coconut, not so much in savory dishes but I would eat anything that is sweet and has loads of coconut in it.
Do you know that coconut is derived from a Spanish word coco and it actually means monkey face? Yup I never noticed it resembles monkeys face, however, I have never seen a whole coconut first hand so can't comment on that one.
Well, moving away from the history of coconut and onto this divine raspberry macaroon slice. A very simple yet very irresistible recipe.
