Graham Cracker Pie Crust

Graham Cracker Pie CrustA homemade graham cracker crust tastes so much better than a store-bought one—and making one is quick and easy.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs, or 11 (double-sectioned) graham crackers, finely crushed
1/4 cup granulated sugar
6 tablespoons butter, melted

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. In a medium bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs and sugar; add the melted butter and mix well.
  3. Carefully press crumb mixture firmly onto the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie plate (using the back of a spoon makes this process easier).
  4. Bake for 10 minutes.
  5. Cool completely before filling.

Makes 1 (9-inch) pie crust; 8 servings.

Flavor Variation: To make a cinnamon graham cracker crust, add 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon.
