Pretzel or Graham Cracker Crust

I'm not sure where I found this recipe. It's not one I made up on my own, but I've seen it in several different places. The idea for pretzel crumbs was mine, though I'm sure others have come up with it before me. I figured, hey, I like salty AND sweet. I bet this would be great at the bottom of a pie. And it remains my favorite crust for key lime pie.

1 cup graham cracker crumbs or pretzel crumbs (a food processor really helps with this!)
3 tablespoons white sugar
5 tablespoons butter, melted

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Mix graham cracker crumbs with sugar and melted butter.
  3. Press into 9 inch pie plate and bake for 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven and let cool.
