Graham Cracker Crust

Great for Cheese Cakes and for Pies!


Graham Cracker Crust:
1 1/2 C. Graham Cracker Crumbs 
6 Tbsp. Melted Butter
1/4 C. Sugar


You can buy pre-made graham cracker crumbs, but they're really easy to make. Just break up some crackers and put them in the food processor and let it do the work for you. You can also put small batches of crackers in a large Zip-Lock bag and roll over them with a rolling pin. 1 1/2 cups is about 1 1/2 of the little packages within the graham cracker box. If you're using the food processor, add in the butter and sugar and process until combined. Otherwise mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl until well mixed. Press the mix into the bottom and sides of a pie pan (or little pie pans) to form the crust. For pies, I like to pre-bake the crust at 350 for about 5 minutes to allow it to set up before I fill it, I don't pre-bake the crust for cheesecakes.
