    AmyZoe's Note:

    I didn't have any graham crackers so I decided to see what else I could use to make the crust. Who knew you could make a pie crust with cereal? I made mine with Captain Crunch. How fun is that! Recipe courtesy of The Joy of Cooking. Serving size is estimated.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 6 cups breakfast cereal (flaked or puffed)
    • 1/2 cup butter, melted
    • 1/4 cup sugar (omit if the cereal if presweetened)
    • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Roll or grind the breakfast cereal. There should be 1 1/2 cups after crushing.
    2. 2
      Combine with the melted butter, sugar (if using), and cinnamon.
    3. 3
      An easy way to form the crust is after mixing to press another pie pan of the same diameter firmly into the dough. When the top pan is removed a crust of even thickness is underneath.
    4. 4
      Trim any excess that is forced to the top edge.
    5. 5
      Crumb crusts need not be baked before filling, but if used unbaked, must be first chilled thoroughly or the filling will immediately disintegrate the crust.
    6. 6
      If baked before filling, they require a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes. It is best to cool the empty baked shell before filling.
    7. 7
      Fill a prebaked shell with chiffon fillings, bavarian creams, or gelatin whips topped with sweetened whipped cream, or with custard or fruit filling, which may be covered with a high meringue.

      I was so happy to see this recipe yesterday. I thought I was the only crazy who thought cereal could work in place of graham crackers. LoL! I used Cinnamon Toast Crunch so I obviously omitted the extra sugar and cinnamon. I only used 3 cups of the cereal to get the 1 1/2 cups after running it through the food processor. I also use about 1/4 cup of butter and still found that it made it too soggy. Next time I'll try even less. It made a great crust for my cheesecake. YUMMY!! Thanks.
