To make a graham cracker crust for a no-bake treat, all you need are some graham crackers, sugar, and butter. For this easy dessert, you will need a food processor or a rolling pin and a plastic bag. To crumble the graham crackers, break up the graham crackers and put them into the bowl of the food processor along with the sugar. The sugar is an optional ingredient, so it is up to you if you want to use it. Pulse to break up the graham crackers further and then process continuously until the graham crackers are crushed into fine crumbs. Alternatively, place all the graham crackers in a plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin until the crackers are broken up into fine crumbs. You should have about two cups total of graham cracker crumbs. Combine with butter: Transfer the graham crackers into a bowl. Melt the butter and pour it over the graham crackers. Stir until the crumbs are evenly coated and look wet. The graham cracker crumbs should hold together in a clump if you press the crumbs in your fist if not, you can add water a tablespoon at a time until this happens. Press the crumbs into a pie pan. Heat the oven to 375° F. Then pour the graham cracker crumbs into a nine-inch pie pan and press the graham cracker crumbs evenly along the bottoms and the sides of the pan. Bake the crust. If you are making a no-bake treat like this 5-minute pineapple cream pie, pre-bake the pie crust for about eight to ten minutes until it is dry and fragrant.
