My husband loves this recipe, and it was his favorite, when I first wrote my cookbook, SHARING OUR FAVORITE RECIPES, a few years ago. I have since created a double layer Key Lime Pie/Cheesecake Recipe recipe which he likes even more. I will share that recipe with you at another time. But this one is simple and easy, and not too many steps, and it looks like you worked for hours making it.That's why I used it as my cover photo. I did not include the extra chilling time in the prep time to make.It is a very impressive looking dessert. I made one for my neighbor when she first moved in years ago,

Jean I assume you are asking for a graham cracker crust without the nuts. The recipe I use is from the Graham cracker crumb box, nothing fancy, it is used in my Strawberry Yogurt Pie Recipe. STRAWBERRY YOGURT PIE, this is the one I usually use if I am putting it in a springform type pan. Sometimes I use Oreo cookies, or Vanilla wafers like in the Fudge Truffle Turtle Cheesecake or the Chocolate Chip Chsecake/Fudge Truffle Topping or vanilla wafers in my Chocolate Irish Cream Cheesecake You can also google for a basic Graham Cracker crust.
