Graham Cracker Crust

"This is a great graham cracker crust, not dry or crumbly. It is sweet, almost like caramel. I recommend filling it with Recipe #115634. This will make a 9 inch crust but you can easily adjust it to make a taller 10 inch cheesecake crust."

    If I'm using this to make a cheesecake, do I cook the crust by itself then fill it with the cheesecake then cook again? Or do I fill it before it's cooked so it only cooks once? Will it get too brown?

    How many graham crackers for 1 cup of crumbs?

    I made a lemon blueberry cheesecake desert. It was 13 x 9. The filling was great, but graham cracker crust much too hard. The crust recipe was 3 cups graham cracker crumbs, 3/4 cups melted butter and 1/4 cup sugar baked at 350 for 14 minutes. I let it cool completely, added the filling then refrigerated overnight. Crust is so hard I can't cut it with a fork! Please help! Thanks!

    This was really good and really easy! I used cinnamon graham crackers from Trader Joe's and the result was REALLY good!

    I used this recipe for my pumpkin pies this Thanksgiving and it was perfect! I did not bake the crusts beforehand since it takes so long to bake pumpkin pies. Everyone raved and it was SO easy!

    I baked it with the filling in it. It turned out great!

    Smells incredible coming out of the oven! You don't get that with store-bought. Pretty quick and easy. I just used one whole package (I think it's 8 whole crackers), which gave me a little more than 1 c., but it turned out ok.

    Like the other commenters, I used about 1 1/2 cups of crushed graham crackers. When measuring the sugar, I did about a 65/35 brown to white sugar ratio. I also added about 1/2 tsp of cinnamon.

    I should have read the tweak before making this crust. Definitely need more crackers to go up the edge of the pan.
