Sweetened, shredded coconut adds flavor and texture to a luscious butter and cream cheese frosting that's easy to make and ever so good. Use toasted coconut as a garnish to create an extra elegant cake.
Whenever possible, use all-butter puff pastry, such as Trader Joe's or Dufour, for the best flavor and texture. For even thawing, let it sit in the refrigerator overnight, rather than on the counter, which can cause the pastry to become sticky and difficult to work with. This recipe is adapted from Martha Stewart's Appetizers.
“People love the topping on this garlic bread. It’s so tasty. Sometimes I switch it up for my son by combining cinnamon, sugar and butter, spreading it on and then broiling the bread." —Tammy Griffin, Frankston, Texas Skip links
