Graham Cracker Crust

Graham Cracker Crust

Everyone loves pie, but not everyone loves the sometimes-finicky task of making a traditional rolled-out pie crust. For them, there is this press-in crust made with just graham cracker crumbs, sugar, salt and butter. It works best with fillings that don't require the structure and heft of traditional pie dough, like this Key lime pie or this ube pie.

  1. Step 1

    In a medium bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar and salt. Stir in the melted butter. (Mixture will look like wet sand.) Press into the bottom and up the sides of a standard (not deep-dish) 9-inch pie pan. Fill and bake according to your recipe. (If your recipe calls for a prebaked crust, bake for 6 to 9 minutes at 375 degrees until just lightly browned. Let cool completely on wire rack before filling.)
