EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

For a spicy flavor, stir 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon or ground red pepper (cayenne) into the butter mixture.

To toast coconut, bake uncovered in an ungreased shallow pan at 350ºF for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Or cook in an ungreased heavy skillet over medium-low heat 6 to 14 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
