  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Combine cracker crumbs and melted butter in a bowl. Mix until evenly moistened; press into the bottom and sides of a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  3. Bake in preheated oven until crust is lightly browned and smells toasted, about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool.
