    For the crust

    In order to prepare the crust, you need to mix sugar, crumbs and butter in a 9 inch pie pan. If it is not available, you can use a spring form pan. You need to keep mixing it until the mixture is uniform and butter is absorbed by the crumbs.

    Across the bottom of the pan, you need to press the crumbs and up the sides. Some experts use a drinking glass to press the crumbs as it works well in lifting the sides.

    Preheat the oven at 350 degrees F and bake the crust for about eight to ten minutes. If you live in extremely hot climate, you may opt not to bake the crust.
