Shortbread Pie Crust

Shortbread Pie Crust

Whatever pie you’re making, this is the BEST No-Bake Shortbread Crust to use with it! In partnership with Crazy for Crust.


1 tablespoon sugar

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted


Place cookies in a large gallon size ziploc bag. Seal all but 1” of the bag (so air can escape) and roll with a rolling pin until the cookies are a fine crumb. You can also use a food processor, if you have one.

Place cookie crumbs, sugar, and butter in a large bowl and stir with a fork until the mixture looks like wet sand. Place in a 9” pie plate and press until it’s very compact.

Chill crust for 1 hour before filling.

The crust is perfect no-bake: it’s crunchy and slices just fine. If you really want to bake it, you can do so for 8 minutes at 350° and then fill as desired.
