Test Kitchen Tips
  • Styling tip: Quick, deft strokes with the back of a spoon create beautiful swoops that make this pie look as good as it tastes.
  • If you want an extra-thick layer of graham-tastic crust, it's as easy as 1-2-3 to make your own: 1. Mix 1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs with 1/4 cup sugar and 1/3 cup melted butter. 2. Press into a pie plate. 3. Bake at 375 degrees until set, 8-10 minutes. Make sure to cool before filling.
