A pie is a baked dish which is usually made of a pastry dough casing that covers or completely contains a filling of various sweet or savoury ingredients.
Pies are defined by their crusts. A filled pie (also single-crust or bottom-crust), has pastry lining the baking dish, and the filling is placed on top of the pastry but left open. A top-crust pie, which may also be called a cobbler, has the filling in the bottom of the dish and covered with a pastry or other covering before baking. A two-crust pie has the filling completely enclosed in the pastry shell. Flaky pastry is a typical kind of pastry used for pie crusts, but many things can be used, including baking powder biscuits, mashed potatoes, and crumbs.(according to wiki ).I have prepared a sweet custard filling pie with sugar and butter coated apple. So let’s start the recipe . Yum
1 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs

Baking a graham cracker crust is optional. If desired, bake the crust in an oven preheated to 350 degrees F. for 8 to 10 minutes.
Another way to set the crust is to refrigerate it for 30 minutes.
