Are you tired of the standard graham cracker pie crust called for in many dessert recipes?
Take half a box of ground vanilla wafers and 2 cups of ground pecans. Add 1/2 cup of melted margarine. Put in bottom of springform pan for desserts or cheesecake for the holidays. Bake in 375 degree F oven for approximately 10 minutes until lightly browned. Then add your fillings.
I do a ginger snap base for a pumpkin cheesecake-- generally the same-- I use butter ( in for a penny, in for a pound) since the caloric cost is the same-- pumpkin pie spices with the crust and TA DA!
My grandkids had to taste test until I got it right!
