INSTRUCTIONS

Crust:

    1. Arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and heat to 350°F.
    2. Break the crackers and add into a food processor along with sugar and pulse into fine crumbs. Add melted butter, pulse to combine.
    3. If you don’t have a food processor, place crackers in a large ziplock bag, press out the air and seal. Use a rolling pin to smash it into small uniform crumbs. Transfer to a bowl, add the sugar and butter and mix until evenly combined.
    4. Press the crumb mixture evenly into the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie plate with fingers or a measuring cup bottom.
    5. Bake until fragrant, about 8 minutes. Set aside to cool 10 minutes. Meanwhile, make the filling.

      Filling:

      1. Place all the ingredients in a large bowl and whisk until smooth and well-combined. Pour into the cooled graham cracker.
      2. On the mid/lower rack of the oven, bake until just set but the center still jiggles slightly about 45 minutes. Let cool at least 2 hours before serving. If not serving immediately, cover and refrigerate, for up to 4 days.
