“A no-bake recipe using softened butter instead of melted butter. I find this produces a better consistency for the crust.”

This is my 1st ever review, so bear with me. I made this yesterday. I already had my little hand mixer out, so I used that on LOW, in a tall glass measuring cup, to mix and incorperate the butter. Worked like a charm. Crust was very easy to press into the pan without the usual "slick" sliding around of melted butter. Since I was in a dire emergency situation, (if I didn't get something cheesecakey in my mouth soon, my head was going to explode!) instead of the fridge, I put it in the freezer for about 30 min instead. Pie sliced cleanly and without any crumbling. I'll use this one again.

This is how I usually make my graham cracker crust, though I do add a little less sugar---about 3 tablespoons. I do not like the box of already crushed crumbs but rather the more uneven type that you get when you use the rolling pin with the crackers in a baggie. If I'm using Honey Maid brand, I use a packet and sometimes even add just a few more crackers so I have a thicker crust. I do put it in a 350 degree oven for about five minutes to let the butter and crumbs come together. Love this crust!

This was quick and easy to make. I was too lazy to measure crumbs, so simply followed another reviewer's suggestion to crush one sleeve of graham crackers. I crushed the crackers in a sealable plastic storage bag, added the sugar, then the butter and mushed it together. After shaping and chilling the crust for an hour, I filled it with this site's recipe for "Key Lime Pie VII". My guests could not stop talking about how wonderful it was.
