    1. 1
      Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 350°F
    2. 2
      Have ready an ungreased 9 1/2-inch fluted tart pan with a removable bottom.
    3. 3
      In a medium bowl, mix the crumbs and sugar with a fork until well blended.
    4. 4
      Drizzle the melted butter over the crumbs and mix until evenly moistened.
    5. 5
      Put the crumbs in the tart pan (I like to use a piece of plastic wrap between my hands and the crust) and use your hands to spread the crumbs so that they cover the bottom of the pan and sides.
    6. 6
      Use your fingers to pinch and press some of the crumbs around the inside edge of the pan to cover the sides evenly and create a wall about a scant 1/4 inch thick.
    7. 7
      Redistribute the remaining crumbs evenly over the bottom of the pan and press firmly to make a compact layer.
    8. 8
      Bake the crust until it smells nutty and fragrant, about 10 minutes.
    9. 9
      Set the baked crust on a rack and let cool. The crust can be made up to a day ahead and
    10. 10
      stored at room temperature, wrapped well in plastic.

      I was making a yogurt cheese tart and wanted a quick crust for the tart pan. This crust held up very well and was very easy to put together. Just the right amount of crumbs and butter. I used Splenda in place of the sugar. I really loved the plastic bag idea for smoothing out the crust. Thanks for sharing the tip and the recipe.

      Just the right size for a tart. The idea of using a plastic bag over your hand is great! Definitely will make again.
