Homemade graham cracker crust for pies are the best! With the holidays just around the corner, our kitchens are a mess! Who needs crumbs everywhere on top of everything else? Nowadays, you can buy a box of crumbs, but if you've ever tried that shortcut, you know that something is lacking. They just don't taste the same. The next time you need to crush crackers into crumbs, try this:
Slip a few graham crackers into a gallon-size Ziploc bag. Zip up the bag, but not all the way - leave a small vent for extra air to escape. Roll them with a rolling pin, shake them a bit, and roll again. Pour them into your mixing bowl, or zip them up until you're ready to use them. Crumbs with zero mess. Enjoy!
Graham cracker crumbs are an essential for lots of "quick baking". I used to buy the cheapest boxes of crackers, and pulverize them to get crumbs for my recipes. I found out today that the "crumbs" are cheaper than the whole crackers. Graham cracker crumbs are in the flour and cake aisle, while the whole graham crackers are in with the cookies. There is a significant savings. Check it out.
