Homemade Graham Cracker Crust

Instead of purchasing a crust, make your own graham cracker crust with just three everyday ingredients. —Janaan Cunningham
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 20 min.

    1 pie crust (9 inches)


  • 1-1/2 cups crushed graham cracker crumbs (24 squares)
  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • In a small bowl, combine the crumbs and sugar; add butter and blend well. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 9-in. pie plate.

    So tasty and easy. Much better than a store made crust.

    When my brother was a teenager (many moons ago) he used to mix the crumbs, sugar and butter together and then just eat it out of the bowl for a snack. Delicious.

    Works every time!-- For a chocolate crust, melt 1/4 cup of butter with 1 tablespoon of chocolate chips --

    "Best tasting crust!" My teenage son's opinion of a simple no-frills pudding pie. This quick crust recipe makes even simplest pie feelings great. Did not bake it. This classic crust is perfect for any no-bake desserts! As a volunteer field editor or Taste of Home magazine I love using simple ingredients and creating dishes that simply impress!

    Made this easy-to-make basic crust for a pumpkin chiffon pie. Doesn't get any better or easier!
