We’ve recently made Best Banana Cream Pie (with a different easy-press pie crust), and Lemon Ricotta Pie with a Ritz Cracker Crust, and we love the buttery flavors of this pie crust. Summer pies are my favorite!

How to make a Ritz Cracker Pie Crust

  1. Keep a box of RITZ snack crackers in your pantry.
  2. Each 13.7 ounce box contains individually wrapped sleeves of crackers. A full box is 11.3 ounces, with three sleeves. This would equate to approximately 3.8 ounces per sleeve.
  3. For a recipe that called for 6 ounces, use two sleeves!
  4. Use a food processor (or place the crackers in a Ziploc bag; seal and use a rolling pin) to crush the crackers.
  5. Add remaining ingredients.
  6. Mix and press the crumbly mixture into a 9-inch pie crust.

Print Recipe Pin Recipe


  • 6 oz Ritz Crackers, about 2 sleeves
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, very cold, cut into 1/2’’ cubes
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 3 1/2 Tbsp brown sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a food processor, or by hand, pulse or crush the Ritz Crackers into coarse shards. Then mix in the butter and sugar, either pulsing with your processor or breaking the cubes apart with your fingers until the crackers and butter stick together when squeezed, but the texture remains rough and crumbly.
  • Press into a 9-inch pie plate, molding bottom and sides to the dish. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until golden and browned, before adding your desired filling, like lemon or banana.
