Tips
  • Cooking Gluten Free? Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
  • No food processor? Place cereal in food storage plastic bag; crush finely with rolling pin or meat mallet. Use 2 1/2 cups cereal to make 1 cup of crumbs. Be sure the crumbs are finely crushed; large particles make it difficult to press mixture into pie plate.
  • The butter can be replaced with 1/4 cup vegan vegetable oil spread stick, melted.
