This short post will guide you through the simple task at making a graham cracker pie crust.
Understanding How to Make Graham Cracker Crust for Pie has always been one of those ‘GO-TO’ pie crusts that I can fall back on, if I need to come up with a pie crust quickly and simply. Especially if I’m throwing together one of my cream pies, like the French Silk pie or my Strawberries and Cream pie, and don’t feel like going with a sweeter option (for example – a cookie crust), knowing How to Make Graham Cracker Crust is crucial.
A great example happened just a few weeks back. The wife and I were on the road, away from home and my plethora of kitchen tools and equipment, visiting my cousins.
Naturally, they wanted a pie made during our short stay there – a strawberry and cream pie to be precise. Not having access to my food processor to chop up my usual go-to pie crust for this – either Lorna Doone or Nilla wafers, I ‘fell back’ to a simple and quick go-to. You got it! A graham cracker crust. Something I could mash up by hand, in a zip lock, and call it good!
Anyways you get the gist. Understanding How to make a graham cracker crust can be very useful to you when in a bind. And besides that, a graham cracker crust goes with almost anything!

Watch the video and try it out. I think you’ll find it surprisingly delicious!
