I was laying in bed last night trying to fall asleep and I started thinking about my website and how I could use a section of how to’s. Staple recipes for crust and things that could be used throughout different recipes without having to go back to a specific one. Well, here is the first one: Graham Cracker crust. This crust can be used in so many different desserts, from cream pies to cheesecake to icebox pies. You could also sub out graham crackers for vanilla wafers 1:1.
- 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 10 sheets)
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 7 tablespoons melted butter
Use a food processor to grind up the graham cracker sheets (or use pre-made crumbs). Combine them in a bowl with the sugar and melted butter, then press them into your greased baking dish. As you can see in the picture, I recommend using a flat-bottomed glass or measuring cup to make sure you have an even layer in the bottom of your dish. All that’s left as this point is to bake per your recipes instructions.
