This easy graham cracker crust recipe—made with heart-healthy oil instead of butter—is the perfect base for meringue pies, ice cream pies, cream pies and more. For a different flavor, try crumbled gingersnaps or chocolate snaps instead of the graham crackers.

might as well just throw some crumbs over a slice of pie filling There's not enough liquid to hold the crumbs together. Lift out a slice of pie, and you wind up with mound of crumbs at the bottom of the pan. I'd make this with real melted butter, maybe 6T of it. After all, it's DESSERT, not a penance! Pros: low-fat Cons: doesn't hold together at all
