Expert Tips

* To crush pretzels, place in plastic bag and seal; crush with rolling pin. Or crush in food processor bowl with metal blade.

**To substitute for buttermilk, use 1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice plus skim milk to make 1 cup.

To vary the presentation, try blueberry pie filling instead of cherry.
