Recently I made my own from scratch and they were delicious. I began thinking of recipes that use that I could make using graham crackers.

This graham cracker crust would taste great to fill with Vegan Strawberry Cream Pie,  Coconut Lime Cheesecake and No-Bake Strawberry Ice Cream Cheesecake.

You can find store-bought Graham cracker crusts in the store but there is no comparison to making your own graham cracker crust recipe from scratch. Another option is to purchase the store-bought graham crackers crumbs, at least that will eliminate 1 step from the process of making it from scratch.

The only drawback is if you are on a gluten-free plan then it might be difficult to purchase pre-made crusts or crumbs.
