    Buttery graham crackers in a smooth crust, perfect for cream pies or cheesecakes.  This Quick Prep Graham Crust recipe is so fast and easy, you’ll be making it all the time.

    This is a basic in my kitchen.  Why buy a crust at the store when this is SO easy and tastes way better? You can dump some pudding in it for a quick and easy pie or use it as the base for a cheesecake.  If you don’t bake it, the crust mixture can be crumbled over yogurt, pudding or whatever you like as a flavorful crumb.

    The first time I ever made this crust, I was putting together a banana cream pie.  Store bought crusts are hard packed. That keeps them from crumbling at all on your plate.  It’s practically a cookie under there. And they tend to be a bit dry. That’s my opinion. I happen to like when the crust crumbles a little on the plate.  I find that texture more enjoyable. So, I made it a point to look for that crumbly, buttery texture when I developed my Quick Prep Graham Crust recipe. That first time I made it…it didn’t quite work out.  I learned pretty fast that the food processor is crucial. I tried crumbling by hand that first time. The next time, I tried beating the graham crackers with a rolling pin to crumble them.

    By making the whole crust in a food processor, everything is evenly distributed and the pieces are equal in size.  That’s important to create an even crust. You don’t want to have one bit that’s just a mouthful of graham cracker.  If you REALLY can’t use a food processor, then put the graham crackers in a large plastic baggie and beat them to death with a rolling pin.  Mix in the salt and butter by hand. It won’t be perfect, and it won’t be even. But, it’s the second best method.

    What you’ll need: food processor
