Dairy-Free "Cheesecake" Graham Cracker Crust or Crumbles (No Bake)
Prep time

Total time
While you could make an ordinary dairy-free graham cracker crust, why not go for extraordinary? Using some cream cheese alternative adds richness and depth that compliments most desserts.
Serves: 1 pie crust
  • 1-1/2 cups crushed or ground dairy-free graham cracker crumbs (vegan or gluten-free, if desired)
  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup dairy-free cream cheese alternative, brought to room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oilor palm shortening, melted
  1. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the graham cracker crumbs and brown sugar. Add the cream cheese alternative and oil or shortening, and combine well with a fork or pastry blender, until relatively uniform small crumbles form.
  2. If making crumbles for topping, simply chill the crumbles.
  3. For a pie or cheesecake, press the mixture into a greased pie dish or springform pan and chill while you make your filling.
I have yet to test this as a baked pie crust. If you need a baked crust, I recommend baking it at 375ºF for approximately 7 minutes.
