Sweet and Salty Pretzel Crust

Julie Pawlacyk


I got this recipe online and it is my go-to instead of using the traditional graham cracker crust. It is sweet, salty and crunchy and has a unique flavor I think you will love.

How to Make Sweet and Salty Pretzel Crust


  • 1Crush pretzels in a food processor until they are finely crushed. (I actually like them when they are a little bigger as shown in my picture as the crunch is better).
  • 2Mix together crushed pretzels, brown sugar and butter until well combined.
  • 3Form into a 9-inch pie plate and all up the sides as well
  • 4Bake at 350* for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • 5***Let crust cool for and hour or until COMPLETELY cool before you fill it***
