How Much Butter For Graham Cracker Crust?
I bought a bag of cookies that were basically ginger snaps without the ginger. They have a small amount of artificial pumpkin pie flavor. I plan to process them and use the crumbs to make a pie crust. I will add some cinnamon or allspice as I will use the crust for a sweet potato pie.
I've been comparing several recipes for a graham cracker pie crust. They all call for 1 1/2 cups crumbs. From there, they vary a lot. The amount of sugar is from 2 tablespoons to a third cup. The amount of butter is from 6 to 8 tablespoons.
I'm wondering if anyone has tried these different amounts of butter and sugar and which they felt was the best.
