Insider Info

Gingersnap crumbs: Process cookies in blender or food processor, or place in plastic bag, seal bag and crush with rolling pin or flat side of meat pounder.

If edge of crust starts to get too dark, wrap a band of aluminum foil around the pie plate, crimping lightly around rim to shield edge from the heat.
