Graham-Cracker Crust (Microwave)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 2 mins

I have used this over and over again. It is quick and easy, eliminating the need for those expensive premade crusts.


  1. Break the graham crackers into the food processor bowl, process until fine crumb consistency. Or use store bought crums.
  2. Pour the melted butter into the processor bowl and pulse until well blended.
  3. Pour the crumb mixture into a 9-inch microwave safe glass pie dish.
  4. Press crumb mixture firmly into pie dish.
  5. Microwave on high for 1 to 2 minutes; rotating dish one-fourth turn every 30 seconds.
  6. Watch carefully to ensure that crust does not burn.
  7. Allow crust to rest and cool before filling.

Easy and delicious. I had graham cracker crumbs leftover from Christmas. Other recipes call for sugar but didn't need it at all. Plenty sweet enough. Made for AZ/NZ tag.
