  4. Fold the crushed rice krispies, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt through until the mixture holds together.

  11. Enjoy!


Crushed cereal base: You will need to make the rice krispie cookie before crushing it and using as the base of the pie, any plain cereal that you prefer would work here.

The perfect consistency: This pie is best when it's slightly gooey once you serve it so you'll want to remove it from the oven once it's only slightly jiggly in the very center.

Serve this: Absolutely best served with a cold glass of milk.
