Coconut Pecan Frosting Mix Substitute
Although the dry coconut pecan frosting mix can no longer be found at grocery stores, happily it can be made at home. Pillsbury has kindly provided this helpful recipe for cooks who still want to use the tasty recipes that include the dry frosting mix as one of the ingredients.
1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup chopped pecans
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
- In a medium bowl combine coconut, brown sugar, flour and pecans; mix well.
- Using a fork or pastry blender cut in butter or margarine until mixture is crumbly.
- Use as desired.
