  • 1 ½ cups (150g) finely crushed pretzel crumbs
  • ¼ cup (50g) granulated sugar
  • 8 tablespoons (113g) unsalted butter, melted


  • You’ll need about 4 ½ cups pretzel twists to make the amount of crumbs needed. Place the pretzels in a food processor and run the processor until they’re finely ground.
  • Stir together pretzel crumbs, sugar and melted butter with a fork. Press into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Chill to set, then use as directed in your pie recipe.



Make sure your pretzels are crushed finely – it’s best to do this in a food processor. If they are not fine the crust won’t hold together. Also be sure to use FRESH pretzels!
