Expert Tips

We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the originals.

For the best results, be sure that the crumbs for the crust are finely crushed and resemble graham cracker crumbs. Large particles make it difficult to press the mixture into the pie plate.

You can use Honey Nut Cheerios® in the crust if you prefer.

To toast the coconut, heat oven to 350°F. Spread coconut in ungreased shallow pan. Bake uncovered 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.
