1 1/2 cups
finely ground graham cracker crumbs
I made this with Honey Grahams (Honey Maid) and added a little less sugar. It was honestly the best pie crust I have ever tasted. Delicous, truly the perfect compliment to the Key Lime pie I made. My box of crackers came in 3 individually wrapped sections and one of those sections came out as pretty much 1 1/2 cups. Thanks for the truly yummy recipe!
I must be in the minority. This was a little too wet and gooey for me, so I added one more cup of crushed cinnamon grahams. After I tried it, I couldn't get past the crunch-crunch of the sugar. It ruined the flavor of my pie. This crust recipe isn't for me.
I used one package graham crackers and put them in a one gallon resealable plastic bag. A rolling pin [or large can of baked beans ;) ] gives quick cracker crumbs and the kids are eager to help. Then I added the sugar and butter to the bag, sealed it for a quick mix and pressed it into the pie shell. Done and only one dish to clean from melting the butter! :)
Simple, simple, simple
I doubled for a 9 x 13" recipe and omitted the cinnamon....
Great / simple / easy
The best recipes are all of these...and this one was. Enjoy
I live in New Zealand where they don't have graham crackers, so I substituted whole wheat digestive biscuits. It turned out better than any store-bought crust I've ever had!
I used this crust in Pumpkin Pie this Thanksgiving. Now I really know what a "rave review" is! My Grandmother called her sister to give her this recipe, the pie vanished, and I got called (several times) to remind me to make it again for Christmas - wow. Also, I accidentally double baked the crust on accident (baked it and then realized the other recipe called for an unbaked pie shell)- not to worry! Cover the exposed edges and bake away, it actually carmelizes even more...mmmmm!
Simple. Yummy. However I overbaked it once and it was hard as a rock -- so be careful!
great for cheesecakes and strawberry pie
