Expert Tips

*To toast coconut, spread in ungreased shallow pan; bake uncovered at 350°F 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Remove from pan to plate to cool.

To make strawberry fan, place strawberry on cutting board; holding the stem end, make 4 or 5 lengthwise cuts, being careful not to cut through to the stem. Carefully fan out slices.
