Bread Crumb Cookies

Save your breadcumbs! This recipe (adapted from The Tightwad Gazette) won my children ribbons at the county fair when they were preschoolers.

Breadcrumbs

Cut the crusts off sandwiches and cube them. Save crumbs from the bottom of the bread bag. Freeze them all.

You mentioned Cuisinart. Did you mean a cuisinart blender OR food processor? The only cuisinart appliance I have is a coffee maker but do need to buy either a blender or food processor

Anything that can chop enough to make chunks of bread into crumbs. =D

Something with blades? Hope this helps. Have fun!!

Anything that will chop chunks into crumbs. I use a Cuisinart blender-type food processor (yard sale score). Something with blades? Or you can hand-crumble / fine dice the breadcrumbs while you wait for a blender to appear on Freecycle. Hope this helps!
