How to Make a Graham Cracker Pie Crust

Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes

This homemade Graham Cracker Pie Crust is easy, versatile and delicious! With just three ingredients, you can make a perfect graham cracker crust for everything from no-bake pies to cheesecake.


  • 1 ¼ cups graham cracker crumbs (about 9 full size crackers)
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • ⅓ cup unsalted butter, melted


  1. In a food processor, pulse graham crackers into fine crumbs. Add sugar and pulse a few times. Add melted butter. Pulse until crumbly.
  2. Pour mixture into desired dish (see notes below).
  3. Using the bottom of a measuring cup, or the palm of your hand, firmly flatten and compress the crumb mixture. If making the crust in a pie plate, press the crust up the sides of the dish first, making sure the crust is high enough to hold the filling, and then work on the flat surface.
  4. Fill and enjoy!


Works for an 8 or 9-inch pie plate, an 8”x8” or 9”x9” square baking dish. Recipe can be easily doubled to make 2 graham cracker crusts or 1 larger crust to fit in a 9”x13”. If using a 9-inch springform pan, double the recipe so that the crust can go up the sides (or if you only want the bottom covered, keep recipe as is).

This graham cracker crust is very versatile, because it can be used for no bake and bake recipes. 

Can I freeze my crust for later? Sure! You may want to blind bake it first so that it holds up during storage. After it has completely cooled, wrap tightly in saran wrap and freeze it for up to 3 months.
