I’m sure many of us have, on occasion, found that the pantry was fresh out of graham cracker crumbs when they were needed for cheesecake. While it is less convenient to make the crackers and crumbs the old-fashioned way, doing so sets you back only about 30 minutes (in an emergency, keep the dough fairly firm to speed the baking and drying process). Once you try these, I think you will find producing your own to be an advantage in both cost and quality. It is a good idea to keep the crumbs on hand as part of your regular mise en place so they are available when needed. Graham cracker crumbs can be stored at room temperature for several weeks.
