Excited to be taking a macaron class led by Helen of tartelette.
I think I am the only non-blogger participating, so I'll include a few of their links along with instructions.

They're made of shredded coconut and therefore, are evil.

No, these are the French-style macarons made famous in Nancy and are made with egg whites, sugar and almond flour.  They can then be flavoured, coloured and filled if desired.

Learned a lot in one afternoon but mine certainly did not turn out like the ones at Laduree! 

But I do love coconut macaroons -- the worlds easiest cookie to make:  a bag of coconut and a can of sweetened condensed milk!
