EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

*To toast coconut, spread in ungreased shallow pan and bake at 350°F for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.

Not a fan of raisins? Omit them and increase the chopped walnuts to 2/3 cup.

Instead of making your own frosting, use 1 container of Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy cream cheese frosting.
