You may notice that this graham cracker crust is sugar free. Well, that is, it’s devoid of added sugar. There is, of course, some sugar in the crackers. But the recipe itself calls for no granulated sugar. It’s just not needed, seeing as most pie fillings are amply sweet. If you’re thinking that this is wrong and that you’re accustomed to adding a smidgen of sweetness to the graham cracker crust recipes of your childhood, just humor us this once.

I made the graham cracker crust recipe with graham cracker crumbs and it was a total snap. Since graham cracker crumbs tend to be drier than graham crackers themselves, I used 7 tablespoons butter. I could have gotten away with 6, but I was feeling indulgent. Ten minutes in the oven seems too long, as the edges got quite dark after the go around in the oven with the filling.
This graham cracker crust recipe is very good. Under the right circumstances, I could sit down with the crust alone. It's buttery with just the perfect amount of sweetness. It needed just the 5 tablespoons melted butter to hold it together. I baked the crust until it was lightly golden, which took the full 10 minutes. It would be fantastic with many of your favorite fillings.
