How to Toast Coconut

Toasting coconut is easy. Just spread coconut evenly onto bottom of shallow pan. Bake in 350°F oven 7 to 10 min. or until lightly browned, stirring frequently. Or, spread onto bottom of microwaveable pie plate. Microwave on HIGH 3 min. or until lightly browned, stirring every minute. Watch carefully as coconut can easily burn!
