Graham Cracker Pie Crust Recipe

This seems to be the same recipe everywhere, and I am finally breaking down and doing it.  I had some small aluminum cups that needed to be used in the kitchen, so I made small pie shells out of this.

You can turn your toddler onto this.
You can make this with no electrical mixers, although a food processor is best.
You can do this completely by hand.

Melt your butter.
Break your Graham Crackers down into a mealy flour.
You can blast them in a food processor or put them into a plastic bag and use a rolling pin on top.

I Packed the Graham Cracker mixed with Butter and Sugar using a tablespoon, then evened it out with my fingers.  It had a modeling clay consistency and formed the sides well.

If you are using an 8 or 9 inch pie shell, this should be done with a square bottomed cup to form the bottom evenly as well.

Ingredients: Makes one 8 or 9 inch pie crust.

  • 1 1/2 cup of Graham Cracker Crumbs.
  • 1/3 cup of Granulated/Table Sugar.
  • 6 Tablespoons of melted unsalted butter.
  • Optionally add a small amount of cinnamon or vanilla.  (or not!)


  • Mix all three ingredients evenly.  Best to use a food processor or be patient.
  • Pack the mix into the bottom of your pie pan/ramekins and work them up the walls if needed to form a shell.
  • Packing can be done with a small measuring cup or your fingers.
  • Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.
  • Allow to fully cool before using.
