Healthy Crumb Crust
(for special diets)
Cheryl Eisenman 
1 cup almond meal (almonds ground fine)
4 tbsp butter
2 tbsp honey 
Mix together with a fork until well blended.  Pat into bottom and up sides of a pie plate.  Place in micro for 1 minute.  Let cool.  Use in place of any recipe calling for a graham cracker crumb crust, especially those recipes that aren’t baked very long as the honey and almonds tend to brown easier than graham crackers and sugar do.
Sweetened Condensed Milk

Cheryl Eisenman 
2/3 cup honey, heated to not quite a simmer
3 Tbsp. butter
1 cup powdered dry milk 
Pour hot honey into blender, add butter.  Gradually add powdered milk though hole in blender lid.  Process until smooth, a minute or two.  This makes equal to one can.  Use in any recipe that calls for sweetened condensed milk.  May make ahead and store in refrigerator if desired.
