When it comes to easy pie crust recipes, graham cracker pie crusts might get all of the attention, but you might be surprised by just how light and delicious a cornflake crust can be. Cornflake cereal as a pie crust ingredient might sound surprising to you, but ask any housewife from the 1930s and they will tell you that this was a staple.

Better yet, this cornflake crust recipe does not need to be baked and is perfect to use for the base of a cream pie like this delicious sugar cream pie recipe or our favorite pecan cream pie recipe.
