graham cracker crumbs on plate

Graham Cracker Crust

Yield: 1 pie shell
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes

Sometimes the tastiest crust is also the easiest. Simple and nostalgic,


  • 2 cup graham crackers, crushed fine
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon sugar


  1. Combine ingredients in a medium bowl and mix until all crumbs are moist.
  2. Press crumbs into a 9 inch pie palate, 8 x 8 casserole dish or 8 inch springform pan. Press some of the crumbs about 1/2 up the the side of the pan. Tap crust with the bottom of glass to compact all the crumbs.


Pre-baking the crust before filling is not necessary and is an optional step.  If you want a crispier
crust then you can bake 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 6-7 minutes.
