Homemade Pie Crust Instructions

Prefer to make a homemade crust rather than use a store-bought crust? Making your own graham cracker crust is a straightforward process, and it adds a wonderful homemade touch to your desserts. Here are step-by-step instructions:

Pie Crust Ingredients

  • 12 graham cracker sheets
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted

Break the graham crackers into smaller pieces and place them in a food processor. (You can also place them in a resealable plastic bag and beat or crush them with a rolling pin until they become fine crumbs.) You should have about 1 1/2 cups of graham cracker crumbs.

In a mixing bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs and granulated sugar. Mix until the sugar is evenly distributed throughout the crumbs.

Stir the melted butter into the crumbs and sugar until the mixture is well combined and resembles wet sand. Ensure that all the crumbs are evenly coated with the butter.

Take a 9-inch pie pan or a similar-sized dish and lightly grease it with cooking spray or a small amount of butter to prevent sticking. Pour the graham cracker mixture into the greased pie pan. Firmly press the mixture evenly along the bottom and up the sides of the pan to form the crust.
