DESSERT: Easy Graham Cracker or Savory Cracker Pie Crust

What is there not to like about a nice graham cracker crust?  It is the ideal crust type for pumpkin pies, chocolate mousse pies, and others.  You can easily create this great crust by simply crushing graham crackers and adding melted butter (or applesauce) and water.  Alternatively, you can create a savory crust with regular whole wheat crackers.

Servings: 1 Pie Crust or 1 Dozen Mini-Pie Crusts

  • 1/2 to 3/4 package of graham crackers or regular crackers
  • 1/3 cup low-fat melted butter
  • 1/8 cup of water
  • Crush graham crackers.  You can either stick the crackers in a food processor or dry blender or by placing the graham crackers in a zip lock back and rolling over the bag with a rolling pin or heavy can.
  • Pour melted butter and water over crumbs 
  • Mold into a uniform ball
  • Roll out into desired pie pan
