The Best Ever Graham Cracker Crust

Once you try this, you will never want to buy the store-bought kind again. Delicious and a little chewy!

1 1/2 c. cinnamon flavored graham cracker crumbs
1/3 c. butter, melted
3 T. white sugar
1-2 egg yolks, beaten

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, mix together the graham cracker crumbs, melted butter and sugar. If desired, set aside 3 T. of this mixture for topping the pie. Press the remaining mixture firmly into the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie pan. Using a pastry brush, brush the surface with the beaten egg yolk. (If you don’t have a pastry brush, you can use your fingers covered in plastic wrap or in a sandwich baggie to brush on the egg yoke. Just be very gentle!) Bake in a preheated oven for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
