The ingredients & instructions are listed below the video for measurements & directions. Please enjoy this webisode of Cooking with Kimberly:



  1. Cuisinart Prep Plus 7 Cup Food Processor - shop.cookingwithkimberly.comEither crush your graham crackers in a large, resealable, plastic bag with a rolling pin or jar until they are just crumbs, or you can crush them in a food processor, or you can buy them already in crumbs.
  2. In a mixing bowl or directly in the baking dish, combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar & 5 tbsp melted butter until combined.
    • Tip: The mixture should ball together, but not be very wet. If they do not stick, add 1 tsp of butter at a time until they do. The consistency should be that of wet sand.
  3. Pour the mixture into your pie plate, and press the crumbs onto the bottom and sides evenly to make a crust without holes or dips.
    • A) If you are baking the pie in the oven, you don’t need to par-bake the graham crust.

  4. Allow pie crust to cool completely before filling it, if you just baked the crust.
  5. Fill the crust with your pie filling and bake, if necessary for filling, or fill crust and serve when filling is set, as in the case of ‘no-bake’ pies.

You’ll be happy to have this Graham Cracker Pie Crust recipe up your sleeve, especially for special occasions.
