This is not sweet and I liked it because the crust turned out so crunchy. Quick and easy. Perfect with coffee in the morning. Made for Holiday Tag.

Nice flavor - easy to make - I was expecting this to be really sweet and coconutty - and it is neither. It is subtle and very nice, especially toasted with butter. Entire family tried it tonight and enjoyed it! Thank you for posting!! ZWT3
