Vanilla Wafer Crust

When you find a recipe that you know that you will one day make, write it down or cut it out of the magazine, and place it where you will know where it is when you get ready to make it.  Vanilla Wafer Crust is just one of those recipes.  I suggest placing it in a recipe box.  That is what I do when I find a recipe that I will one day cook.  Once I cook it and decide it's a keeper, I write it in my family recipe book.  When I blogged about my mother-in-law's Pink Pies on 6/21/11, I said that you could just place the vanilla wafers in the bottom of the pie plate and this would serve as the pie crust.  However, when I saw the recipe for Vanilla Wafer Crust in Southern Living this month, I knew I had to share it with ya'll, 'cause one day you will want to use this crust for a pie as I will do the next time I make Pink Pies.  I guarantee it!

The Farmers Daughters Market opens back up tomorrow, Sept. 2nd, at Dothan Nurseries on Montgomery Highway.  We have all been getting ready over the summer to get ready for the Fall Market.  I will be selling Hot Pepper Jelly (everyone's favorite), Mayhaw Jelly, Blackberry Jelly, and Peach Preserves.  I will also be selling jalapeno peppers, cayenne peppers, sweet banana peppers, and bellpeppers.  There will be new vendors joining us and some of their products are beef, lamb, chicken, eggs, boiled peanuts, and fresh cut flowers.  There will also be fresh bread, frozen casseroles, baked goods, fresh honey, pecans, fresh vegetables, and orange satsuma marmalade.  You can bet there will be samples to graze on while you shop.  Come see us!
