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

Use a food processor to crush the cookies. If you don’t own one, place cookies in a resealable plastic bag, seal bag and crush cookies with a rolling pin.

Peach Mango Cheesecake: Use a 20-ounce jar of sliced peaches for the mangoes.
