Classic graham cracker crust typically gets baked, unfilled, for 10-15 minutes, then cooled before use. Of course, if you're buying a pre-made crust from the grocery store, the crust is already prepared for you. This section of pie recipes contains pies that are cooked in the oven after the filling is added to the graham cracker crust.
1. Pumpkin Pie with Graham Cracker Crust
I have a friend who loves pumpkin pie--but hates traditional pie crusts. I'd never even considered making pumpkin pie with a graham cracker pie crust until I had it at her house. The warm flavor of the pumpkin pie spice and the custard filling and the buttery graham cracker crust was amazing! That pumpkin pie recipe inspired this whole post, and I'm never going back. This is an easy pumpkin pie to make, whether you make your own crust or buy it from the store.

Pecan pie is another traditional Thanksgiving recipe that's usually made with a pastry crust--but it doesn't have to be!

The brown sugar in the crust really compliments the rich, caramel-like flavor of the pecan pie filling.
