Expert Tips

* If desired, pecans can be broiled instead of baked. Line broiler pan with foil; place pecans in single layer on pan. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat for about 1 minute or just until they begin to brown. Watch carefully to prevent burning. ** If desired, spray sheet of plastic wrap with nonstick cooking spray; place over scoops of ice cream. With hand, spread ice cream evenly; remove plastic wrap.
