Basic Graham Cracker Pie Crust

This is traditional for use in Key Lime Pie, and can be substituted for a pastry pie crust in many other pie recipes.

1 1/2 cups graham crackers
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup melted unsalted butter

Combine graham crackers with sugar and butter and blend until the texture of coarse meal (this is easy to do in a food processor). Press into a 9- or 10-inch pie pan. Either bake first (8 to 10 minutes at 375 degrees) or fill immediately and proceed with pie recipe directions. Makes 1 pie crust.
