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
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.
For a cookie crumb crust: Substitute 1 ½ cups finely crushed chocolate wafer cookies (24 cookies), vanilla wafer cookies (35 cookies) or gingersnaps (30 cookies) for the graham crackers. Decrease butter to ¼ cup; omit sugar.
