Kitchen Tips
Use your food processor to make fresh bread crumbs in seconds. Tear the bread into pieces and place in processor bowl. Cover and process, pulsing 4 or 5 times, until coarse crumbs are formed.
In place of 2 teaspoons of apple pie spice, use 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon each of ground cloves and allspice, plus a pinch of nutmeg.
