Graham Cracker Crust Recipe for Pies
Graham cracker pie crusts are not only popular, but they are also quite easy to make at home. You can purchase graham cracker crumbs or make your own from whole graham crackers by tossing them in a food processor or place in a plastic bag and use a rolling pin to break them up.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 9 minutes

Total Time: 19 minutes


  • 1-2/3 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 Tablespoons butter, melted


Mix together graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and butter until well-combined.

Press mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie plate or tin.

For baked pies, preheat oven to 350 F and pre-bake crust for 7 to 9 minutes. Cool before filling. For no-bake refrigerator or freezer pies, no baking is necessary.

Yield: one 9-inch crust

The ratio of butter to graham crackers is way off. I've used other graham cracker crust recipes before with limited success and wanted to try a new one, probably should have kept looking. The butter is greasy and it's all soggy BEFORE you bake it, when I put it in the oven the sides slid down and just made one thick greasy bottom crust.
