Graham Cracker Crust

Graham Cracker Crust

For 9 inch pie pan

1-1/2 cups honey graham cracker crumbs (1 wrapped packet or 1/3 of 14.4 oz box forced to be crumbs in a food processor.
3 tablespoons sugar
1/4-1/3 Cup (1/2+ stick) unsalted butter, melted
pinch salt

Note - I used 1/4 cup the first time I made this (new bifocals). Because the ultimate use of it was for the lemonade pie, the lesser amount of butter was fine. Experiment and see what works for you.

In a medium bowl mix graham cracker crumbs, sugar and salt. Add melted butter. Mix. Press into pie pan with patience making sure you've pressed it into the areas between the bottom and sides.

If you need a pre-baked crust, bake 6-8 minutes at 375 degrees. If not (use more butter) and chill.

Base ingredients: food.
