yes, you are making perfect sense - :D
It could be that the cheesecake crust has nuts in it or could it be that the crust is made with vanilla wafers versus graham crackers?:
5 oz Pecans (approx.)
3/4 c Vanilla Wafer Crumbs
1/4 c Confectioners Sugar
1/4 c Melted Butter
Chop nuts very finely in food grinder or food processor. Should have 1 cup of ground nuts. Cookies should also be chopped very finely.
Combine crumbs, chopped nuts and sugar, and mix thoroughly; drizzle
with melted butter and mix lightly. Press onto bottom and 1 1/2 inches up side of springform pan.
Requires about 25 vanilla wafers to make 3/4 cups
The only other thing I can think of is there is not as much butter as is usually called for - that would make it dryer and more crumbly. I need help from a baker!!!!! :|
