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.
- 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
Generously butter a 9-inch pie plate or tin.
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.
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.
This pie crust is great for fillings such as pudding and ice cream, especially those using chocolate.
