One of the plastic-wrapped packages from the graham cracker box plus one whole cracker (or 1 1/2 cups pre-crushed graham crackers)

Press the graham cracker pie crust into a pie pan using your fingers.

If the pie you'll be making will be baked, you can go ahead and fill the graham cracker pie crust and bake it when you bake the pie. For recipes that don't call for the pie to be baked, go ahead and bake the crust alone at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Hopefully this graham cracker pie crust recipe will cut costs for your desserts and make your summer just a little bit sweeter!
