I would try smashing up gluten-free cookies (shortbread) and using the crumbs.

Went six weeks, and fell back into a deliciously painful world of cheese.

Dx Gluten & Casein Sensitive through Enterolab 10/06

Dx Adrenal *Exhaustion* 2/07

Originally from WI, I am still in denial over my newfound casein intolerance. I fear I will not be allowed back into the state if I can no longer eat cheese and drink milk. This could pose some trouble over holidays when I wish to visit my family. It also poses a problem involving the severe rage I feel when I have to throw away somebody's unfinished cheese sticks. That is so wrong.

I made ginger cookies that ended up being way too crumbly, so I just crumbled them all up and they are in the freezer awaiting that very thing you mentioned.

IT was a mix from Grandma Ferndons. I think it was actually ginger snaps

Health Valley makes a rice bran graham style cracker and it tastes very similar to a graham cracker, only they are much harder. But smashed up as crumbs they would work fine. You just need to smash them very fine, or grind them in a food processor or grinder. I buy them at Whole Foods.

You can also get them online at the Gluten Free Pantry and other stores:

It is possible to make your own cramb crackers. My grandma makes gluten free graham crackers for herself and one of her granddaughters. I tasted them and they were pretty good. She had used them in a cheese cake crust.


Myself-Age 25....I have had symptoms since at least 1998 if not since infancy (was diagnosed with malnutrition as a small child)...Positive results with gluten free diet!

Hannah-Age 5.....Has symptoms....Inconclusive blood tests....Positive diet response to both gluten free and lactose free!

Grace-Age 1.....Born at 29 weeks due to me having celiac....Has reflux and a feeding tube.

Husband-Not Celiac......has found that he does feel better when not eating allot of gluten.....is gluten free at home.

I've used teff flour (available from Bob's Red Mill and also from the Teff Company) for apple pies and also pumpkin pie. The consistency of the pie crust is a little bit like a graham craker crumb base.

It might work to bake an unfilled pie crust (made from teff flour) and then crumble it.

Has anyone ever tried doing this?
