Oh what a difference a single egg yolk makes. If you 're not convinced, try this yummy graham cracker crust. The egg yolk is brushed onto the crumbs just before baking, and the finished crust is crisp and brown every time.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 1 1/2 cups cinnamon graham cracker crumbs
- 1/3 cup butter, melted
- 3 tablespoons white sugar
- 1 egg yolk, beaten
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a medium bowl, mix together graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and sugar. If desired, set aside 3 tablespoons of mixture for topping pie. Press remaining mixture firmly into bottom and sides of a 9 inch pie pan. Brush surface with beaten egg yolk.
Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes, until lightly browned.
