Graham Cracker Crust (America’s Test Kitchen Recipe)

This is an easy base to any awesome pie. I happened to use it for America’s Test Kitchen Key Lime Pie recipe.

Ingredients

8 whole graham crackers, broken into 1-inch pieces

3 tablespoons sugar

5 tablespoons unsalted butter

Steps

Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 325 degrees. Process graham cracker pieces and sugar in food processor to fine, even crumbs, about 30 seconds. Sprinkle melted butter over crumbs and pulse to incorporate, about 5 pulses.

 

Sprinkle mixture into 9-inch pie plate. Using bottom of dry measuring cup, press crumbs into even layer on bottom and sides of pie plate. Bake until crust is fragrant and beginning to brown, 12 to 18 minutes; transfer to wire rack.
