Plugra European Style Unsalted Butter, 8 oz (for spreading and flaky pastry)
This flavor foundation is a great addition to sorbets, soups, and curries, and it's an ideal alternative to dairy (try it in a fruit smoothie). Coconut milk should look like heavy cream and smell like actual coconuts. Some of the brands we tested were clumpy and watery, but Goya's is always smooth, which guarantees silky curries. And, most important, it hits the right flavor balance. As test kitchen director Mary-Frances Heck says, "It tastes like coconut, not a Piña Colada."
