Graham Crackers

If you have made my cheesecake the recipe probably sounds familiar.  All you need to do is crush the crackers, stir in a little sweet and butter, and smash it into your pan.

Perfect Graham Cracker Crust Ingredients:

  • Graham Cracker Crumbs- Graham’s are my go-to for this recipe. Be sure to pound or blend the crackers until fine crumbs. 
  • Sugar- Granulated sugar, or white sugar, is what works best with this simple recipe.
  • Cinnamon- This ingredient is optional but a GREAT addition to the flavor profile of this pie crust. 
  • Butter- I use salted butter in my crust recipe.

How to make a graham cracker crust from scratch:

  1. Whisk the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and cinnamon together in a bowl. Use a fork to cut in the melted butter. Press into your pie pan using the back of a large spoon or measuring cup.
  2. If you pie recipe calls for an unbaked crust you are good to go. If you need a baked crust cook for 5-7 minutes at 375 degrees.

Tips for this recipe:

  1. The great thing about this recipe is that you can get pretty creative with spices. We always add a touch of cinnamon but a little ginger, nutmeg, or pumpkin pie spice would add a unique flavor that would compliment any pie.
  2. How to crumble those crackers… Use a blender OR place a few into a large Ziploc bag. Smash away with a rolling pin until they are a nice crumbly texture. That step is particularly fun if you have little ones helping in the kitchen.
  3. I like to use the bottom of a measuring cup to help give it a nice packed and smooth finish.
