DIRECTIONS

  • Roll or grind the breakfast cereal. There should be 1 1/2 cups after crushing.
  • Combine with the melted butter, sugar (if using), and cinnamon.
  • 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.
  • Trim any excess that is forced to the top edge.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
