    I live in Australia so am unfamiliar with the butter measurement. What is the equivalent weight of a stick of butter please?

    • Caitlin says

      Hi Grant!! 1 stick of butter has 8 tbsp so you’ll need 12 tbsp of butter total or 6 oz. Enjoy! xo

    • Caitlin says

      Hi Susan! As long as the brands you use are all GF then you should be good to go! Enjoy!! XO

    I used this rice Krispies pie crust and filled with banana pudding and drizzled with chocolate. My husband absolutely loved it.
