Graham Cracker Pie Crust
What you are creating
Graham cracker crusts are so versatile!
From cheese cake to frozen desserts, graham crackers make the perfect bottom to your favorite confection.
Heat the oven to 375 degrees.
Combine graham cracker crumbs and sugar in a medium bowl and stir to mix them well.
Add the butter and stir to mix it evenly into the crumbs mixture.
Press the buttery crumbs into a 9-inch pie pan,
distributing the mixture evenly, and pressing firmly with your hands or another pie pan of the same size, to flatten the crumbs and shape a sturdy crust to hold the filling. Make sure to work the crumbs up to the rim of the pan, to make a good, strong edge.
Place the crust on the center shelf of the oven. Bake at until the crust is heated through and lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Place the crust on a cooling rack and let it cool to room temperature before adding the filling. NOTE: You can purchase graham cracker crumbs in the baking section of the grocery store.
If you purchase graham crackers, you can make crumbs using a food processor. Just break the graham crackers into medium pieces, and put them into the work bowl of a food processor. Pulse to break pieces down into bits. Process until you have fine crumbs, stopping once or twice to scrape the sides and grind them evenly. Measure out 1 1/4 cups, and prepare the crust as directed.
1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 15 squares)
3 tablespoons sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted
