Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs from about 9 whole graham crackers
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon optional
  • Pinch of salt
  • 7 tablespoons unsalted butter melted

Instructions

  • If you’re using whole graham crackers, finely crush them in a food processor or place them in a ziploc bag and roll with a rolling pin.

  • To make a baked graham crust: Preheat oven to 325°. Bake crust for 10 minutes, until it just starts to brown. Cool completely before filling.
