Expert Tips

To same time, use purchased crushed graham cracker crumbs.

A food processor makes quick work of turning whole cookies, wafers and crackers into crumbs.

Whipping cream whips faster when the bowl and beaters are very cold. Chill the bowl and beaters in the freezer for 20 minutes before using them to whip cold cream.
