I’d love to try the recipe but am alittle confused on what type of coconut to use. It’s says grated and I’m not sure I know what that is. I know of desiccated and the regulars sweetened bagged kind but not of grated. Could you clarify this please and Thank You : )

2 things Nina, either you don't use the liners when baking, and place them in the liners only after they cool down, or if you do use liners, they peel off fine the next day, so just make them the day before serving.
