Notes and Tips

To toast coconut, spread coconut into single layer on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350°F (176 °C) for 5 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until light golden brown. Remove from baking sheet. Cool completely.

I used Philadelphia Light cream cheese.

For the glaze, I used milk instead of half & half and added lemon zest.

My baking pan is dark in color, so I reduced the temperature by 25 degrees and watched the baking time.
