  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs, finely crushed (about 10 sheets of graham crackers)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted


  • Finely crush the graham crackers, using a food processor or a rolling pin in a zipclose bag. Make the crumbs as fine as possible, as this will help the no bake crust hold together better.
  • Add the graham cracker crumbs to a medium bowl and stir in the granulated sugar. Pour the melted butter in and stir until combined.
  • Firmly press into the bottom and sides of a 9 inch pie plate or the bottom of a 9x13 inch pan.
  • Chill the crust for 30 minutes before filling with your favorite no bake dessert. I recommend this cheesecake!
  • After filling, refrigerate the crust with the filling for at least 4 hours before serving.



Cook's Note: If the crust is difficult to remove from the pan, carefully dip the bottom of the pie plate into hot water for a couple of moments. This will warm it slightly and make it very easy to release and serve.
