Author Notes

Adapted from this graham cracker crust: —Sarah Jampel

What You'll Need
  • 1 1/2 cups finely ground Cracklin' Oat Bran cereal
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • Filling of choice
  1. Preheat the oven to 375° F. In a medium bowl, mix the ground cereal with the melted butter until the cereal is evenly coated and damp.
  2. Dump the mixture into a 9- or 10-inch tart pan or pie pan, and press in evenly, using a spoon, the flat bottom of a cup, or your fingers (it helps to put a layer of plastic wrap over the crust in this case).
  3. Bake the crust for 7 to 9 minutes, until it is a deeper shade of brown and dry-feeling. Monitor it closely so that you can turn the oven down if it's browning too quickly.
  4. Let cool completely before filling.

Mine turned out very crumbly after it baked and just slid down the pan :-/

What a great idea. I am sure this crust adds a nice crunch for any tart filling.
