Graham Cracker Crust Recipe
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.
PRO TIP: I like to use the bottom of a measuring cup to help give it a nice packed and smooth finish.
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.
PRO TIP 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.
What kind of pies do you have on the menu this year? I would love to hear how creative you are getting with those desserts! Leave a comment below.
Graham Cracker Crust
- 1 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 6 tablespoons melted butter
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.
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.
