Before I share my graham cracker crust story, I wanted to let you all know that I'm a guest over at Mum and Babies. If you have a chance, please stop by and visit.
Now for the story.
I had gotten the ingredients to make a strawberry pie with graham cracker crust. As the day went on, I knew I was running out of time to make it, so I asked my ten-year-old daughter to do it. She had done it before, so I figured it would be no problem.
A little while later, she presented me with the finished product. "Ta dah!"
I looked at that thing. Yes there were strawberries in there, but the top wasn't quite what I expected. She had taken whole graham crackers, laid them on top of the pie, and scooped cool whip on top of them.
"Um," I said looking at that thing. "That's interesting. What's up with the graham crackers?"
"It's a graham cracker crust," she said. "I didn't think we had enough cool whip, so I did it like this."
Now that's what I call a literal graham cracker crust!
