Graham cracker pie crust is the easiest pie crust in the world to make. I kid you not! I say it’s from scratch, but, of course, you have have to buy a box of graham crackers and a stick of butter, unless you know how to bake and churn your own!

I give you this recipe now because summer is here, and with it, summer pies. Graham cracker crust goes well with tart pies, such as lime or lemon.

Here you go…


  • 1 package graham crackers (1 1/4 cups, crushed)
  • 6 T butter (3/4 stick)
  • 1/4 cup sugar

Crush the graham crackers in a paper bag or in a food processor until they are pulverized.
Add the sugar and melted butter.
Mix until it has the consistency of wet sand.

Press the mixture into a 9-inch pie pan. Voilà!

You can bake at 350 degrees for twenty minutes or chill in the refrigerator for an hour before filling.
