I made this with Honey Grahams (Honey Maid) and added a little less sugar. It was honestly the best pie crust I have ever tasted. Delicous, truly the perfect compliment to the Key Lime pie I made. My box of crackers came in 3 individually wrapped sections and one of those sections came out as pretty much 1 1/2 cups. Thanks for the truly yummy recipe! Read More

I must be in the minority. This was a little too wet and gooey for me, so I added one more cup of crushed cinnamon grahams. After I tried it, I couldn't get past the crunch-crunch of the sugar. It ruined the flavor of my pie. This crust recipe isn't for me. Read More

Wonderfully simple! I used one package graham crackers and put them in a one gallon resealable plastic bag. A rolling pin [or large can of baked beans ;) ] gives quick cracker crumbs and the kids are eager to help. Then I added the sugar and butter to the bag, sealed it for a quick mix and pressed it into the pie shell. Done and only one dish to clean from melting the butter! :) Read More

I live in New Zealand where they don't have graham crackers, so I substituted whole wheat digestive biscuits. It turned out better than any store-bought crust I've ever had! Read More

I used this crust in Pumpkin Pie this Thanksgiving. Now I really know what a "rave review" is! My Grandmother called her sister to give her this recipe, the pie vanished, and I got called (several times) to remind me to make it again for Christmas - wow. Also, I accidentally double baked the crust on accident (baked it and then realized the other recipe called for an unbaked pie shell)- not to worry! Cover the exposed edges and bake away, it actually carmelizes even more...mmmmm! Read More

Simple. Yummy. However I overbaked it once and it was hard as a rock -- so be careful! Read More

Replicating a useful comment I followed: 1 plastic package of crackers = 1.5 cups. Put them in a plastic freezer bag and smash with rolling pin. Add butter and smoosh around in bag to mix. Use the bag to pat the crumbs down into the pan. No mess. Read More

Delicious pie crust. Much better than store bought. I used McVitie's Digestive Biscuits (British) and the crust turned out great. The other changes I made were to increase the crumbled cookies/biscuits to 2 cups and increased the butter to 8 tablespoons. It turned out great! Read More
