  • 34 cup vanilla wafer crumbs

directions

  • Cut in butter using a pastry blender or a fork until mixture is crumbly.
  • Prepare a 9 inch oven-proof pie dish by spraying with some vegetable oil, then dust with flour, Shake off any excess flour off the pie dish and discard.
  • This prevents the shell from sticking to the dish when baked.
  • Spoon wafter mixture into the pie dish; press evenly to the bottom and sides using a rounded soup spoon. Also, use a potato masher with small holes or squares to firm the bottom crumb mixture. The thickness should be about 1/4 inch.
