A good shortcut can go a long way, but sometimes, a homemade pie crust can make all the difference. We love making our own two-crust or one-crust pie pastry for fruit pies, but did you know you can also make a classic graham cracker crust in just two steps? Follow our easy guide to learn how.
 
What you’ll need:

  • 1 ½ cups finely crushed regular or cinnamon graham crackers (24 squares)
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • Medium bowl
  • 9-inch glass pie plate
How to:

1.    Heat oven to 350°F. In medium bowl, stir all ingredients until well mixed. Reserve 3 tablespoons crumb mixture for garnishing top of pie before serving, if desired. Press remaining mixture firmly and evenly against bottom and side of pie plate.
