I love pie. Seriously, cakes are good and I  probably wouldn’t turn down a brownie or a peanut butter cookie but pies are sublime. Given the choice between pie and cake, I will choose pie 95% of the time.

A good pie starts with a good crust. Cookie crumb crusts are a fabulous choice for the pastry-impaired. Graham cracker is the classic choice but I’m not a huge fan. Vanilla Wafer Cookie Crumb Pie Crust makes everyone in my house happy.

I had planned on sharing this a few months ago but summer was crazy and I didn’t make a pie at all. When it came time to start Thanksgiving recipes I knew this had to be one.

This pie crust is easy to make. All you need are three ingredients and a few minutes. You can bake the crust or chill it for a no-bake pie.
