GRAHAM CRACKER PIE CRUST — A simple but delicious recipe for graham cracker pie crust. Substitute chocolate wafer cookies, vanilla wafers or shortbread for different variations on this traditional crumb crust.
Every time I go to make a Graham Cracker Pie Crust, I have to Google the ingredients to make sure I’m using the proper ratios of graham cracker crumbs, butter and sugar. Every time!
So I finally decided to post the recipe right here on my blog, where I’ll always be able to find it.
This is such a handy recipe to have on hand. I use this type of base for some of my cheesecakes and my Heavenly Cream Pie. Made without the sugar it’s good for savory things, such as, quiche. Definitely a very versatile and handy recipe. ~ Suzanne
It almost seems like one of those recipes that’s not even worth posting, but I know I’ll be coming back here for it time and time again. And hopefully it will come in handy for you too.
I like to add just a touch of cinnamon to my crust, and I usually opt for buying graham cracker crumbs rather than crushing my own.
If you do crush your own crackers, you’ll need about 1 1/2 sleeves to get the 1 1/2 cups of crumbs required for this recipe–and a food processor works great for making crumbs, if you have one.
Doubled, this recipe will make enough crust for a 9×13 pan.
