In a small saucepan or the microwave, melt 6 tablespoons of butter.
There are two methods of doing of making the crumbs:
1. The best way to do this, however, is in a large food processor, just be sure to use the pulse button and pulse the crackers, then add the butter and sugar, and pulse two or three more times before removing and putting into your pie pan.
2. Place about 24 graham crackers in a plastic bag. Roll with a rolling pin until finely crushed. This may be done in small batches. Measure 1 1/2 cups of graham cracker crumbs into a medium bowl. Add 1/4 cup of sugar to the graham crackers. Add the melted butter. Stir or blend together with your hands.
Finally, press into the pie plate or other pan.
To pre-bake the pie crust, bake for 8 to 10 minutes in a preheated 350 degree F. oven.
Add a little cinnamon, nutmeg, or allspice to the crumbs for a spiced flavor
