Expert Tips

  • Tip:
  • If you love the warm, nutty flavor of toasted coconut, you can toast it before sprinkling on top. To toast coconut, sprinkle it in an ungreased heavy skillet and cook over medium-low heat 6 to 14 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
