Folks,

So the graham cracker crust was invented independantly of PBC's Honey Maid pseudo-graham crackers, as far as I know. But if you make a crust using "real" 100% whole wheat graham crackers, you end up with a crust which is dry, crumbly, and doesn't hold together. Believe me, I've tried.

My thinking is that making a crust using "traditional" graham crackers must require more melted butter and sugar than Honey Maids do. But how much more? Has anyone tried?

How much sugar and melted butter are you using? I've can't find any recipes where I noted using real wheat grahams, but know I've bought them. I generally use low-fat ones, and get them at TJ's.
