Happy Thanksgiving!!! Graham Cracker Crusts

Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow readers.  The day is finally here.  First and foremost, I want to Thank God for blessing me with new Grace and Mercy every day and I want to Thank God for all my blessings to come.

As I mentioned before...I started my desserts on Wednesday...well everything except for the peach cobbler.  I had to throw in the towel last night. Today I will start on the cobbler and the main course.

No More store bought graham cracker crusts....you can do this... 

Graham Cracker Crust Ingredients

 
- 8 graham crackers
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar
-5 tablespoons of unsalted butter (melted)


Since I don't have a food processor yet...I started off by rolling out the graham crackers.
 

 
Then I added the granulated and brown sugar.

Then I added the crust into bowl of melted butter.  The consistency should look like wet sand or gravel.
 

 

 

 
Add the crumbs to a pie pan bake in the oven for 10-15minutes or until crust starts to brown.
This spring form pan has aluminum foil wrapped around it because I am making a cheesecake that has to bake in a water bath.
 
 
 


You can become creative with making your crust by adding nuts depending on what type of pie you are making.  I have also made crust made out of cookies for example Shortbread cookie crust, Gingersnap cookie crust and Oreo cookie crust.
