Kinnikinnick sells cookie crumbs that I have used for a crust before. So, maybe you could crush some gluten-free cookies.

Recipe for gluten free graham crust

1 1/2 cups G.F. flour
1/2 cup margarine (melted)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped nuts

Mix ingredients and spread evenly but lightly in a 9" z 13" baking pan
Bake at 350 for 10 minutes
Stir until well crumbled, return to oven and bake 10 minutes more until browned evenly
Cool and use as a base for any desserts calling for a graham wafer base.

Hint: Double the recipe and store the rest for future use.

The G.F. flour mixture is made up with

6 cups of sweet rice flour
2 cups tapioca flour
1 cup potato starch flour

Or use any commercial brand of gluten free flour.

Hope this helps :P

I crush up any gluten free cookie or homemade cookie, including ginger snaps, shortbread, animal crackers, etc. Any works ... just depends on the taste you want.

I also do this for cheesecake crusts :)

I also do this for cheesecake crusts...and then just follow any "normal" recipe and substitute my crumbs in.

I LOVE those bar cookies.......when I make mine I use pamela's pecan shortbread (like pecan sandies of our gluten filled days). Crumble them up and put in the butter like always. It turns out great!!

Crushed Gluten Free corn flakes, with some cinnamon and sugar added make great crumbs, I use it all the time for my cheesecakes and no one can tell the difference.

I've also used crushed chocolate sandwich cookies (Kinnetoo's or Midel) to make a chocolate crumb crust for a cheese cake.m That is terrific.

for my recipes (esp gluten-free cheesecake) i use some sort of ground nut--usually pecans. i sub it equally for the crumbs and still add the Tbsp or whatever of melted butter/sugar. i love it and even non-gluten-free people say it's better than regular crust. i dunno... its something i do that's easier than trying to find all those gluten-free cookies/crackers out here on the prairie :) lol good luck!
