Basic Graham Cracker Crust



  1. 1 1/3 c. graham cracker crumbs (about 16 whole crackers)
  2. 1/4 c. sugar
  3. 5 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°. In the bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade, process the graham crackers and sugar to fine crumbs. With the motor running, add the butter and process until the crumbs are moist and stick together. Press the graham cracker mixture into the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie pan. Bake in the center of the oven for 8 minutes or until the edges are slightly brown. Makes a single 9-inch crust.
