Tip By La Cocina Goya

No Food Processor? No Problem!

To transform cookies into fine crumbs sans food processor, try this: Place cookies in large zip-top bag; seal tightly, squeezing out any air. Place bag on work surface. Using blunt end of rolling pin or bottom of skillet, pound cookies until fine crumb forms.
