I have yet to try this recipe but simply by reading the procedure and list of ingredients, it brought a smile on my face. Normally, a recipe for the same thing would be complicated or even require many prepared indredients...needless to say i was shocked and very thrilled to find this great recipe that I will be using with the Key Lime Pie! Can't wait! Here's to a day in the kitchen with nobody around exept NESTLE!

    This is GOOD! Both the cinnamon and orange peel are great additions. I used regular honey graham cracker crumbs, since that's what I had, but look forward to trying this with whole wheat ones instead.

    WONDERFUL

    I'M ALWAYS LOOKING FOR RECIPES THAT USE WHEAT INSTEAD OF WHITE FLOUR, WHITE BREAD, ETC. THIS IS WONDERFUL AND THE CINNAMON, WHICH WE LOVE, IS A NICE TOUCH.

    The crust is healthier and still tasty. A page keeper for sure. Can shave chocolate or teaspoon cocoa powder on the bottom for an alternate way.
