Updated May 7, 2010

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Diced dried fruit is convenient for recipes. The packaged mixture we used in this recipe contained golden raisins, pineapple, papaya, apricots and mango.
  • tip 2
    Coconut dries when it's exposed to air; seal an opened package of coconut in an airtight container or plastic bag and keep it refrigerated for up to six months.
  • tip 3
    Try coarsely chopped walnuts in place of the macadamia nuts.
