5 Easy No-Bake Pie Crust Recipes

Author: Shelly Hill

During the hot Summer months, I avoid heating up my kitchen with the oven. I prefer to make no-bake pie crusts, by using alternative ingredients.

You don't need to use a rolling pin, dough board, pastry blender or any of the traditional pie baking equipment. All you basically need are the ingredients, a large bowl, a measuring cup and of course, your pie pan.

These recipes are easy to make and best suited for refrigerated or frozen dessert-style pies. You will want to chill your pie crust for 1 hour (or until firm), before filling the pie shell with your pie filling.

Here are 5 of my favorite recipes.

Chocolate Cookie Crumb

24 chocolate sandwich cookies, crushed
1/4 c. butter, melted

Combine crushed cookie crumbs with melted butter until well mixed. Press mixture firmly into place into a 9" around pie pan.

Cornflake Crust

1 c. crushed cornflakes
1/4 c. sugar
6 tbsp. butter (melted)

Combine crushed cornflakes with sugar and butter, until well mixed. Spread the crumb mixture evenly and firmly into a 9" round pie pan.

Vanilla Wafer Crust

1 1/2 c. finely crushed vanilla wafers (about 39)
6 tbsp. butter, melted

Combine crushed wafers with butter, until well mixed. Spread the crumb mixture evenly and firmly into a 9" round pie pan.

Graham Cracker Crumb

1 c. crushed graham crackers
1/4 c. sugar
6 tbsp. butter (melted)

Combine crushed graham crackers with sugar and butter. Toss thoroughly to combine. Press mixture firmly into a 9" round pie pan.

Pretzel Crust

1 1/4 c. crushed pretzels (no salt)
1/4 c. sugar
6 tbsp. butter (melted)

Combine crushed pretzels with sugar and melted butter. Toss to thoroughly to combine. Press mixture firmly into a 9" round pie plate.
