    • 7 ounces graham crackers, broken into large pieces
    • ½ cup toasted pecans

    • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
    • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
    • 1½ cups raspberries
    • 1¼ cups blueberries and/or blackberries


  • 1 Pulse graham crackers, pecans and salt in a food processor until finely ground. With the motor running, drizzle in oil, then pulse to combine. Press into a 9-by-13-inch baking dish.
