 How to make Graham Cracker Crust


Making a graham cracker crust is so simple and quick that there is hardly ever a reason to buy store-bought. Just crush the crackers into crumbs, mix with melted butter, and bake. No fuss, no muss! You can even freeze the baked crusts so you have one on-hand for those times when you don't want to heat up the kitchen.

 Graham Cracker Crust
Graham Gracker Crust

Makes one 9-inch pie crust

What You Need

1 3/4 graham crackers
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 stick butter
3 tablespoon brown sugar
Food processor OR a rolling pin and a plastic bag
9-inch spring pan


1. Crumble the Graham Crackers: Break up the crackers and place them in the bowl of a food processor along with the sugar, if using. Pulse to break the crackers further and then process continuously until the crackers are crushed into fine crumbs. Alternatively, place all the crackers in a plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin until broken into fine crumbs. You should end up with about 2 cups total of graham cracker crumbs.
2. Combine with Butter: Transfer the graham crackers to a bowl. Melt the butter and pour over the graham crackers. Stir until the crumbs are evenly coated and look wet. The crumbs should hold together in a clump if you press them in your fist; if not, add water a tablespoon at a time until this happens.
3. Press into a Pie Pan: Heat the oven to 375° F. Pour the crumbs into a 9-inch pie pan and press them evenly along the bottoms and sides.
4. Bake the Crust: If you are making a no-bake pie, like Ice Cream Pie, pre-bake the crust for 8 to 10 minutes until dry and fragrant. Cool completely before proceeding with the recipe. For a baked pie, like pumpkin or custard pie, fill the pie and bake according to the recipe instructions.
Additional Notes:
• In place of graham crackers, you can use ginger snaps, nilla wafers, chocolate wafer cookies, chocolate graham crackers, cinnamon grahams, or any other cookie or cracker that is dry and crumbles easily.
• This crust can also be baked in ramekins, muffin cups, cake pans, or tart pans.
• Baked crusts can be wrapped in foil and frozen for up to three months. No need to thaw before filling - the crust will be thawed and perfect by the time you set the pie on the table.


Place 3 boxes 8 oz cream cheese, 3 eggs and one yoke, 3 tablespoon flour, 1 1/2 cups sugar,1 can 15 oz pumpkin, and 1/4 cup sour cream. mix well together.

 NEXT: ADD SPICE: 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg. 1/8 teaspoon clover and 1 teaspoon cinnamon mix in mixture.

 Add to spring pan

Bake 1 hour let rest in pan for 15 mins

Banana Pudding

I don't know where I got this recipe but thank God for them who make it.It is great!!!

Banana pudding is a very simple, homey, and classic Southern dessert. There are really only two ways to make it -- the right way and the wrong way. There's no futzing with the ingredients or the preparation. Futz, and you have something different.
  • The right way: make a simple, homemade pudding on the stove top.
  • The wrong way: make instant pudding.
  • The right way: keep your pudding vanilla flavored. No squished bananas, no spices, no nothin'.
  • The wrong way: make banana flavored, or any other flavored pudding.
  • The right way: use ripe, but not overly ripe, sliced bananas
  • The wrong way: use green or overly ripe bananas that you've squished, chopped, or cooked.
  • The right way: use Nilla Wafers.
  • The wrong way: use homemade or any store bought cookie other than a Nilla Wafer.
  • The right way: alternately layer the three main components - cookies, bananas, pudding in that order. Repeat if necessary.
  • The wrong way: not getting at least one layer of bananas and cookies underneath the pudding.

 Bread Pudding

This Is the Best Bread Pudding Recipe ever.... It is based on a cafe in New Orleans so you know it's got to be good. when I tried it...I deleted the bread pudding I had for years and now this one is in my recipe box. I am giving you four sauces recipes to uses on top

1). Lemon pie filling Or instant vanilla pudding ready made

2)  Pecan-Praline Sauce

Heat 1 cup of the butter in a large saucepan until melted. Add the pecans and mix well. Bring to a boil. Cook until the pecans begin to change color. Be careful! This mixture will foam over, so use a large saucepan.

Add the remaining 1 cup butter and mix well. This will cool the pecan mixture and stop the cooking process. Remove from heat.

Combine brown sugar, whipping cream and cinnamon in a saucepan and mix well. Cook over low heat until blended, stirring constantly; increase heat. Cook to 230 degrees on a candy thermometer. Stir in pecan mixture. Add sour cream and vanilla and mix well.
