loads of graham crackers - don't say cheesecake!
My husband works near a peak freans factory and occasionally picks up some cheap cookies from the 'scratch & dent' section. Well, a while ago on his way out they handed him a garbage bag of individually wrapped graham crackers and said 'here...free!'
He was thrilled, but now I don't know what to do with them! We've done the s'mores and we've done the cheesecake, and we haven't made a dent. Any ideas?
Magic cookie bars. I honestly don't know what you're going to do with a whole garbage bag of grahams, though? Do birds and ducks like them? Feed our feathered friends!
I have not made this, but a friend insists it's good:
1 pre-baked 9" pie shell
1 1/2 c sweetened coconut
1 1/2 c graham cracker crumbs
1 1/2 c chopped pecans
1 1/2 c sugar
1 c egg whites (6-7)
Whisk whites lightly, stir in other ingredients, pour into prebaked shell, then bake in preheated 350 oven for 35 minutes
when I was a kid my aunt would serve them to us like cereal...broken up in a bowl with milk on top. I used to love it!
It won't use up a ton but you could make Nanaimo Bars. http://www.nanaimo-info.com/gpage.html
Then you could process some of the graham crackers into crumbs and store them in sealed jars. They should keep about forever + 2 weeks.
BTW, I'm sure you don't want a steady diet of cheesecake but there are sooooo many wonderful ones that sometime down the road you might break out that jar of crumbs and try a pumpkin cheesecake or a chocolate one or one swirled with lemon curd or who knows what will occur to you.
