Expert Tips

Cooking Gluten Free? Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.

No food processor? Place cereal in food storage plastic bag; crush finely with rolling pin or meat mallet. Use 2 1/2 cups cereal to make 1 cup of crumbs. Be sure the crumbs are finely crushed; large particles make it difficult to press mixture into pie plate.

The butter can be replaced with 1/4 cup vegan vegetable oil spread stick, melted.
