This peanut butter graham cracker pie crust recipe kicks traditional no-bake pie crusts using graham crackers up a notch.

This filling is a perfect base for cold fillings such as pudding and ice cream, especially those using chocolate like chocolate cheesecake.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter (or 1/3 cup crunchy peanut butter)
  • 2 tablespoons (about) water

Steps to Make It

  1. Generously butter a 9-inch pie plate or tin.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together graham cracker crumbs and sugar. Blend in peanut butter until thoroughly combined. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, and knead with your hands until mixture sticks together.

  3. Press mixture evenly into the bottom and up the sides of the buttered pie plate. Chill pie crust about 2 hours until set, then add filling.

  4. This pie crust is great for fillings such as pudding and ice cream, especially those using chocolate.
