I do not have a food processor. And no, it is not because I am living in a 500 sq foot cottage. I have just never had one. I am not really sure what I would use one for.
So for all of you out there that are wondering how you could live without one, I thought I would show you how I make a graham cracker crust the old fashion way.
Simply take about 10 graham crackers and place them in a ziplock bag….try to remove as much air as possible and then make sure the bag is totally zipped shut.
Then gently roll with a rolling pin. I actually find this very therapeutic….unless of course the bag breaks…but that only happens when I am “REALLY’ stressed out.
Then pour the crumbs into a mixing bowl and add 6 tablespoons of melted butter and 1/4 cup of sugar. You can use less sugar if you want.
Then simply take the mixture and press it into a pie plate. I have heard that some people then stick their crust into the oven for about 8 minutes to dry it out. I personally really like mine moist so I have never done that.
Every time I have ever made a graham cracker crust I wonder why I have ever bought one. They are soooo much better homemade..and so easy.
So…now that I have shared with you on living without a food processer, please tell me why I need one. My new kitchen will have plenty of space for it, but I really don’t know if I need one.
