Homemade Nilla Wafer Pie Crust
During the summer months, we enjoy pies for dessert often. We love our Strawberry Pie that is like Frisch’s and also our Maraschino Cherry Pie. This summer, I plan to make some of our other favorite pies. I will be sure to share many with you.
Pies are great for potlucks, bbq’s, and picnics. I like to have a summer pie in the fridge to enjoy after our summer grill outs.
I like to make cold pies when we have hot weather. If I need a traditional crust, I use our Easy 4 Ingredient Homemade Pie Crust. It is easy and a great crust for most any pie.
Some of the ideas I have for pie this summer will work great with this Homemade Nilla Cookie Crust. I thought I would share it as a separate post. It would work great for so many of your summer and fall pies too. Be sure to save this super easy recipe.
You will need some Nilla wafers, butter, and sugar. You then can either make this recipe as a no bake or toss it in the oven for just a few minutes. If you make it no bake, you will want to be sure to leave the crust in the freezer long enough to firm up.
8 oz Nilla Vanilla Wafers (about 3/4 of box)
1/2 cup Sugar
1/2 stick Butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350.
Grease glass 9-10″ pie dish. Set aside.
Pulse wafers in food processor until finely crushed.
